The weekend of the 19th May saw the 13th annual Himley Hall Charity Dragon Boat Race. Held each year at Himley Park, Himley Hall, Wombourne, the charity event is organised by the Rotary Club of Wolverhampton and sees teams from across the Black Country battle it out in the Great Pool in traditional Chinese Dragon Boats.
Brendan and crew paddled this year in aid of Birmingham Children’s Hospital; and they are still open to receive donations. It couldn’t be easier – no online forms, no credit or debit cards; just a good, old-fashioned sponsorship pledge and cold, hard cash! Simply e-mail Zoë Brettle at firstname.lastname@example.org and please give generously in the name of a good cause!
For further pics of the team, check out our Flickr Photostream. Or even check us out in the Express and Star. That’s right – if the team in that boat looks familiar, it’s because it’s Brendan Fleming and crew waiting to do Dragon Boat battle!
