Teams are being invited to take part in a large-scale fund-raiser which takes place annually at a scenic spot in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

This year's Rudyard Sailability Dragon Boat Race, which is being sponsored by Cottage Delight, will take place on Saturday, July 5 at it's regular venue of Rudyard Lake near Leek.

Secretary of Rudyard Sailability , Jackie Griffiths, said: "We still have space for teams for this year's Dragon Boat Race.

"The event starts with time trials when the field will be set into two divisions, with the fastest teams competing for the cup competition and the slower boats competing for the plate. All competitors will receive medals.

"The Dragon Boats need ten paddlers and one helm to steer with a total £200 per team to enter and any further sponsorship gathered would be greatly accepted.

"Fancy dress is an option, but a keen sense of fun and a sporting spirit is essential."

As well as exciting, highly-charged racing, there is also a children's race at lunchtime, and lots of activities around Rudyard Lake on the day including barbecue, cakes, café, tombola, face-painting, and more.

All proceeds from the Annual Dragon Boat Race go to running costs of Rudyard Sailability. Jackie added: "The monies raised help so that we can continue to deliver rewarding and enriching water-based experiences to those who live with disability while we finish our building project.

"We are pleased that once again we have a Dragon Boat Race team from The Meadows Community School – just one of the schools that we welcome to the Lake every week."

Anyone interested in entering a team into this year's Rudyard Sailability Dragon Boat Race can call 0783 7271783 or email dennis.priebe@hotmail.co.uk.
