MacIntyre and Gable Events are celebrating the Chinese New Year by inviting entries into the 18th Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival. This popular annual event returns to Willen Lake in Milton Keynes on Sunday 23rd June and up to 50 crews are expected to battle it out in 40’ brightly painted Chinese dragon boats, over the 200m race course, watched by several thousand spectators.
The Dragon Boat Festival offers an excellent opportunity to raise money for MacIntyre. For crews opting for the popular gold and silver entry packages, a significant donation to MacIntyre is included in the entry fee, alongside marketing benefits such as the company logo on the sides of a dragon boat.
In addition, the crew raising the most money for MacIntyre will receive a special prize meal at the acclaimed Melis Restaurant, sponsored by Merinvest – a great incentive!
Claire Kennedy, Head of Fundraising at MacIntyre said:
“MacIntyre is delighted to be the official charity for the 2019 Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival. Financial constraints in the social care sector mean that income we receive from fundraising is more important than ever. We use fundraised income to buy the extras that make a real and tangible difference to the people we support.”
Every penny raised at this event will be used to benefit our Milton Keynes Sports Project.
