Last weekend the Dragon Boat Festival saw us come 2nd for the second year running.
With glorious weather and a lot of laughter, Boss Model Management would like to thank everyone for their support and donations to Barnabus.
We would also like to honour our team captain Jennifer Overend who put all this together, it wouldn’t have been possible without her.
From the woman herself, here are a few words 🙌
”Thank you so much for all your help in raising money and awareness for Barnabus and the success that was Dragon Boat Day! It was a great day, the perfect line-up, blue skies and we had such an amazing turnout for support. Also, a special thanks to Gareth our Planning and Strategy Master for ensuring everything was organised in my absence the week before and leading up to race day, and to our Vice-Captain Matt who led all the team talks and kept motivation up especially when we needed it most.
With everyone in good spirits, our first race saw us finish first place in a speedy time of 0.57.87 seconds, which is a massive improvement from last year’s first race time.
Out of 18 boats who took part in the event over three heats throughout the day, only three of us qualified for the final which is such an achievement in itself.
For the final race the excitement was high, teamwork was on form and the team did not disappoint. We rowed our way to a 2nd place victory and I could not be any prouder!
Thank you again to everyone, the whole team, supporters and all who donated to such a good cause and helped spread the word via social media. Carol and Yvonne from Barnabus were touched by everyone’s generosity and even though they raced their own boat on the day, they routed for us right through to the finish.
