Story

Join us for a fun team building event, raising money for LDN London to support some of the capital's most vulnerable people. Perfect for companies, organisations or groups of friends.

What is Dragon Boat racing?

Dragon Boat Racing is one of the world's oldest sports, originating in China over 2,500 years ago. Teams of 11 race against each other in a series of qualifying timed races, culminating in a Grand Final race and the presentation of trophies and Champagne.

No experience is necessary, full training is given on the day. Alongside the races, there are fun landside challenges, food and a bar too.

Where and when?

Friday 17th May, 11am-3pm. The event will be held at Surrey Docks Water Sports Centre in Rotherhithe (overlooking Canary Wharf).

Who can take part?

Each team has a minimum of 11 people (10 rowers and a drummer who keeps the pace). Teams can bring up to 22 people and share the different heats if desired and organisations can enter as many teams as they wish. No prior experience or racing skill is required.

LDN Community Hub

The funds raised will be used to run workshops where we help people gain long lasting life skills (including around health and mental health, budgeting, health, sustainability) and support people to gain confidence and independence. It will also mean we can reach more people with learning disabilities who are isolated and need help in London.

We support people with learning disabilities to be included in their community and have the opportunities that everyone should, whether in health care, getting a job or having a good home to live.

LDN London supports people with a wide range of learning disabilities. This includes people with mild and moderate learning disabilities, as well as people with profound and multiple disabilities. People we support have health conditions including Down’s Syndrome, Williams Syndrome, and many other learning disabilities and autism.

About the charity

LDN London is an award winning charity for people with learning disabilities in London. We have extensive experience of working with families and both children and adults with a range disabilities. Placing special emphasis on the promotion of effective relationships with families.
