Each year the Dragon Boat Race on the Itchen Navigation by Garnier Road is a major social and fund raising event for Winchester Samaritans. This year we were blessed with sunshine and warm weather and 16 teams competed for the honour of the annual trophy, and the participants, their families and stall holders raised a tremendous total of £4500.
Our congratulations go to Kung Fu Dragons who were this years winners in a very tight run off with ATR Winchester and in third place were the Jubilee Netball Team.
