On Wednesday l8th October we welcomed sponsors, representatives of the paddling teams and our charities who were presented with their cheques, amounting to several thousand pounds, by our guest of honour, Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, Mr Barry Dodd CBE.
Over 60 people attended a 'celebration evening' to hand out cheques to local Charities raised at the Dragon Boat races in June of 2017. Over £7,500 was raised. Boat sponsors, paddlers and local charties had an enjoyable evening as cheques were handed out to a dozen local Charities, by the Mayor and Mayoress of Scarborough and the Deputy Lord Lieutenant.
