Last Sunday (23rd June), CoolLED Ltd took to the waters of Coate Park, Swindon, to get involved in the annual Dragon Boat Race to raise vital funds for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance (HIOWAA).
Tasked with the challenge of designing and creating their very own, custom-made dragon boats, the teams – made up of 17-20 members – then had to navigate their way through the twisting and turning 250-metre course.
As well as rowing their socks off, they raised further funds through selling raffle tickets and prizes, meaning the total raised is now over a fantastic £1,500!
Marie Baxter, Corporate Fundraiser for HIOWAA, said:
“It’s great to see CoolLED Ltd taking part in such a unique event. HIOWAA always welcome and encourage people to come up with creative and unusual ways to raise money, and to see they’ve already beaten their target is amazing! Congratulations and thank you to all the team who took part!”
