Prepare your boat - it’s the way of the dragon


Nautical coves with big hearts are needed on Willen lake, with the official launch of the 2015 Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival. 

The annual event is scheduled for Sunday, June 21, and all funds will go to charity Age UK Milton Keynes.

As well as competing for the champions’ cup, each team is encouraged to raise funds for the charity, which works with and for older people to make a real and positive difference to their wellbeing and quality of life.

Money raised from the festival will help fund the information, advice and advocacy services that the charity provides for older people and their families throughout Milton Keynes. Every year the local charity provides support and services to over 14,000 people and their families.

Teams need to be made up of 16 people, and there is always room for new entries.
