Another Success for the Dragon Boat Race

The annual 5 Towns Dragon Boat Challenge which was held on Saturday the 18th June at the Amphitheatre in Knottingley was a great success with lots of money raised for the teams charities.

Thank you to all those who took part, the winners were Selby Swanns who regained the title from 2014. Haribo came a very close second.

Thank you to all of the sponsors and to spectators who came to support the teams and to all the volunteers from SKY who gave a day to help ensure the day went smoothly and for their support with the fundraising.
