16 paddlers and a drummer completed our team of Amberley Label dragon boat racers, we were captained by our Technical and Commercial Manager, David Richards threatening “I’ve got your number” and kept in time on the drum by our Quality Assurance Manager, Claudie Thornewill shouting one, two, one, two. We had great fun racing and raising funds leaving us with a little bit of sunburn, some aching limbs and a few bruises to show on Monday morning back at work.
We would like to thank ALL the suppliers, customers and friends who supported us in raising almost £1,000.
Diverse Abilities Charity Day.
A great local charity Diverse Abilities organized the Dragon Boat Race Day at Poole Park last Sunday where a variety of groups and companies entered teams most of whom were fancy dress. Team Amberley were sporting the classic 118 outfits in a variety of shapes and sizes! The event generated a fantastic turnout and raised a total of more than £13,000 of much needed donations.
