Webbs staff prepare to defend their dragon boat title

First published in Local

STAFF at Webbs garden centre in Wychbold are hoping for another success on the water in a charity boat race.

Staff from the centre, in Worcester Road, and from the West Hagley branch, are taking part in the Pershore Phoenix Dragon Boat Race on Sunday, September 7.

Last year the Webbs team proved the strongest, and they will now be hoping to repeat their triumph.

The event is being held on the River Avon at Pershore.

Money raised is being donated to the Acorn's Children's Hospice, which offers care to life limited and life threatened children and young people, and their families.

Mark Goddard, the Webbs team leader, said: "We are ready to defend our title and have put in some training for the big day. It’s a great team building event, good fun and helps raise money for charity so we are all looking forward to it."
