Arke support local charity at The Bath Dragon Boat Race

On September 10th, a team of 11 made up of Arke staff and friends, will compete in a dragon boat race down the River Avon in Bath, in support of local charity Designability. The aim of the day is to raise as much money as possible for the Wizzybug Loan Scheme. The Wizzybug Loan Scheme provides fun, paediatric powered mobility to children under 5 with a disability completely free of charge.

The Arke team, headed up by captain Andrew Hodges, is looking to raise a minimum of £1100 for the cause. Andrew said “This day is about raising awareness and money for this fantastic cause. But let’s not kid ourselves, it’s going to be fiercely competitive. I’m going to be reminding my team, ‘The Desolation of Arke’, that we’ll be leaving nothing in our wake!”.

If you want to sponsor us we would be very grateful, our just giving page is here. Alternatively, if you find yourself in Bath on the Sunday in question, come down and give us a cheer!
