On 17th July a team from Equita competed in the annual Northampton Dragon Boat Festival at Billing Aquadrome organised by the Rotary Clubs of Northampton and they loved the experience as much, if not more than the first time.
The team had set themselves the target of winning their race category and also completing in all three races without capsizing this year. They successfully managed to do both.
The Equita crew were cheered on by staff and family members from the banks and everyone was delighted that the sum of £812.00 was raised for the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
The team organiser said: “It was undoubtedly the team spirit, grit and determination that spurred them on and receiving the medals was the highlight of the day. All in all this was an amazing result as this was only our second year at dragon boat racing - so a huge well done to all of our team members.”
