CRA Europe took part in the Nottingham Dragon Boat Challenge on Sunday 5th August 2012 in aid of Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People. We raced against 42 crews over a 200m race course watched by thousands of spectators, so the pressure was really on!
As many of our staff are parents or have young relatives, the idea of a child suffering through illness moves us all. This is why we chose to support Rainbows, a charity which provides hospice care for sick children and their families. Rainbows receives only 10% of its funding from the government, and relies on people like us to fundraise, donate and sponsor to raise the remaining funds it needs for its vital work. For more information on this amazing charity, please visit www.rainbows.co.uk.
Thanks to some generous donations from colleagues, friends and family, we are proud to say that we managed to raise a total of £656.30 for the charity! Thank you to everyone who showed us support by sponsoring us and coming to cheer us on during the day.
