Dragon boat challenge raises funds and team spirit

Over 50 Wirquin employees and their families had an oar-some time at the Charity Dragon Boat Race on Saturday 11 June at Lakeside, Doncaster. Everyone cheered on “Team Wirquin Together” of 10 paddlers and 1 drummer in their three races to achieve an overall position of 15th place out of 30 teams.

“It was a fantastic opportunity to spend time with colleagues and network with other local businesses,” says Nick Richards, Team Captain.


There was a fun atmosphere along the shore as everyone enjoyed hotdogs and burgers, fair games and stalls and good weather.


Wirquin raised over £1000 for the chosen charity for 2015, Aurora Wellbeing Centres – a local charity supporting men and women affected by cancer.
