2024 Dragon Boat Briefing

With only 61 days left until the 2024 York Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge the Team Captains’ briefing was held on the 14th May at the Novotel.  The briefing as attended by representatives of all teams along with York Rotary members.

The briefing covered in detail the event arrangements, including a thorough details of the safety requirements for the event.  We heard about the fundraising arrangements for the event.  To date £1.5m has been raised via the dragon Boat Challenge, the 2023 event raised £90,000 and the target for 2024 is £100,000, we hope everyone help us to achieve that goal.

As part of the briefing we heard about the work of York Samaritans, one of the nominated charities for 2024, we were all impressed by the details of their invaluable work.

We were also joined by Elly Fiorentini of radio York, Elly will be providing the event commentary, as she has done for the last 20+ years, we are very grateful to Elly for her support.

The teams at the briefing were all very enthusiastic about the event and are all underway with their fundraising, including some great ideas for developing those.

We look forward to the Dragon Boat Challenge on the 14th July and we hope for good weather on the day.
