Martin House Dragon Boat Race 2019

The ICC group entered the annual Martin House Dragon Boat race for the 4th time which took place on Sunday 19th May 2019.

The ICC Nauti Buoys

The Nauti Buoys worked hard together in the first 3 qualifying races and won each race!  Their team spirit and determination carried them all the way to the 5th and final race which was very close with just a second between all finalists.   The final result was touch and go until it was announced that ICC came 3rd place, out of 48 teams, receiving well deserved bronze medals.  Well done everyone – it was an outstanding effort.

At the event ICC had a great double gazebo set up overlooking the lake.  Leon and Linda hosted a spectacular BBQ serving 180 burgers and sausages and 150 cans of Stella, to keep the team strength up throughout the day!

We are extremely happy that we exceeded our target of raising £1000 for Martin House by £32!  Thank you to everyone who generously supported the event.  If you’d like to look at our sponsor page or make a donation, you can do so here.

All-in-all it was a very enjoyable and fun filled day, thank you to everyone who took part and showed their support.

“For ICC the annual boat race is a valuable team building event,” said Leon Wheeler, CEO of The ICC Group.  “It really gets everyone working together whilst also raising money for such a great cause and it makes an enjoyable day for all the family.”

It was the 12th year of the Dragon boat race which is held on the lake in Roundhay Park.   The event is a unique team-building or corporate event which helps to raise needed funds to support hundreds of children and young people across Yorkshire.

It is a great event to enter and it is a fantastic family day out with plenty of entertainment, activities and refreshments available throughout the day for the whole family.
