News and Media Blog Dragon Boat Racing with BNI Central and Green Parlour Our next dragon boat fundraiser takes places in June 2017 and we’re looking for team members to join in the fun. Get in touch with [email protected] if you’re interested in rowing with us! The TVAA boat will be racing along the Thames sponsored by Green Parlour in Pangbourne. Rotarian Paul Sampson and Director of Green Parlour Florists, said "I have wanted to fund a boat for years, but have never been able to get a crew together. Thanks to the volunteers from BNI Central Reading we were able to get a good number on board this year! My fellow Pangbourne Rotarian, Tony Eldridge has master-minded the event for many years and the Club has raised well over £100,000 in that time. Thames Valley Air Ambulance is a great local cause, expanding their coverage of emergencies with their new night flying helicopter. It’s always a marvellous day by the Thames, with the Fete going on alongside!" Check out our promo video from 2016’s race: TVAA Dragon Boat Race from LensBear Productions on Vimeo.
