Slideshow: Dragon boat racing at Wicksteed Park

This year’s dragon boat races at Wicksteed Park were another roaring success.

The annual event, which is organised by the Rotary Clubs of Rushden, Rushden Chichele, Corby Phoenix, Kettering and Kettering Huxloe, raises funds for Lakelands Hospice in Corby and Cransley Hospice in Kettering, as well as other charities supported by Rotary.

This year the overall winners were A1 Fitness of Kettering, who finished ahead of Dig Deeper representing Hewlett and Son of Northampton, Unprepared representing Cransley Hospice, and West Lodge.

This year’s final fundraising total isn’t yet known, but organisers will be hoping to beat the £25,000-plus which was raised last year.
