Eleven property experts from the Lincoln office of national commercial property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH), took on competitors from 15 teams in the third annual rowing spectacular at Brayford Waterfront.
The event which was watched by hundreds of spectators, is on course to raise a record amount for its three recipient charities, with LIVES, St Barnabas, and Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance set to net a share of more than £6,000.
Marie Gutteridge, director of lease advisory at LSH’s Lincoln office, who led the LSH Crusaders, said: “The Lincoln Dragon Boat Race is quickly establishing itself as one of the best charity fundraisers in the city and we are proud to have been a part of the event for a third consecutive year.
“The Brayford was packed with people, the sun was shining and it was a great stage for what turned out to be another hugely successful event that has raised significant sums for some excellent local causes. Although we were again robbed in our quest to make the final, we’re already looking forward to doing it all over again next year!”
An ancient Chinese tradition, Dragon Boat Racing has become the fastest growing water activity in Britain. The Lincoln Dragon Boat Race is organised by Ringrose Law with Lincoln BIG and Visit Lincolnshire.
