On Saturday 12th July 2014 Jordans took part in the 6th annual Dragon Boat Race held at Pugneys County Park which was organised by the Wakefield and Huddersfield Rotary Clubs.
Members of staff, along with their friends and family, from across our three offices selflessly gave up their Saturday for a day of fun on the water while enjoying the sunshine.
As this was the second time we had competed we managed to improve on our times from last year. We completed the first race in 1.13, the second in 0.59 and the third in 1.01. Sadly we did not make the top six to compete in the final but we did come in a respectable 11th place out of the 35 teams entered. We are even more pleased that we achieved this with a predominantly female team!
The firm’s efforts raised £232.25 for a very deserving local charity KIDS, which supports disabled children, young people and their families within the Wakefield District. The firm would like to extend a grateful thank you to everyone who kindly donated to this event and everyone who supported Jordans on the day.
Here is a short video of the team heading to the start line for the second race.
