Dragon Boat Race 2017

Posted by Chris

We are once again excited to announce we will be participating in Bobath Wales 'Dragon Boat race 2017'. 

The race takes place over one day and each team will take part in a minimum of 3 races over a 250 metre stretch of water, before the teams with the fastest times go through to the Grand Final!

 Each boat needs 10 paddlers and a drummer to keep the rhythm! So if you we're able to contribute a donation it would be greatly appreciated. 

Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre Wales provides physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy to children all over Wales who have cerebral palsy. Bobath therapists are state-registered and work together as a team to combine these disciplines to give each child the skills to explore their world, communicate their needs, maximise their potential and so improve their quality of life.

We would greatly appreciate if you could contribute to the great work Bobath do, we have set up a Just Giving page to collect donations.
