Power to the paddle

05 June 2017. News.

Peldon Rose is delighted to be attending the Wimbledon Dragon Boat Racing on Saturday 18th June at Wimbledon Park Lake. A team of 10 paddlers from across the business, including CEO Jitesh Patel, will be coming together to compete with other local teams from Wimbledon and further afield at the event which runs from 12:00 to 16:30. In addition to the dragon boats, there will be a BBQ, food stalls, soft drinks, face painting, inflatables and lots of other great activities to make it a fun day.
The event is being run by The Really Helpful Cub and Knight Frank are the headline sponsor. This year the event is raising money for children's charity Momentum. Momentum supports children, and their families, across Surrey and SW London who are faced with the diagnosis of cancer or another life-limiting condition. They offer practical and emotional support through their family support programme; provide holidays, trips and treats to help during the stress of treatment; and implement projects within hospitals to help enhance the healing environment.

Philip Oke, who works in our Mechanical & Electrical Services team, is a keen dragon boater and leading out our team on the 18th June. We wish our team the best of luck and a great fun day out!

Power to the paddle people!!
