It was a fabulous day at the Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival at Willen Lake on Saturday.
MacIntyre was the official charity for this year’s event, some of which was also filmed by All4’s Extreme Cake Makers as we were gifted an incredible dragon themed cake by Oak FurnitureLand following their store reopening that morning. The cake was made by Rosie Cake Divawho features on the TV programme. The episode is expected to be aired in the Autumn.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to the amazing organisers Gable Events, media partners MKFM and Business MK, and of course all the teams and sponsors.
