The Nene Valley Dragon Boat Race is coming to Kettering again.

Organisers hope this year’s event, at the newly restored lake in Wicksteed Park on Sunday, August 31, will be bigger and better than ever.

They are hoping for more teams and, most importantly, more money being raised for local charities.

Last year’s event raised more than £25,000 for Cransley and Lakelands hospices and the event will be supporting them again this year.

The support of local business is much sought after and all those wanting to help by entering a boat into the race fun are asked to email info@nenevalleydragons.org.uk.
