Webbs charge into charity dragon race

A team of keen paddlers from Webbs Garden Centre in Wychbold have been raising money for charity by taking part in a dragon boat race.

This is the second year running that the garden centre has sent a team in for the Pershore Phoenix Dragon Boat Race along the Avon, which raises money every year for Acorns Children?s Hospice.

Mark Goddard, the Webbs team leader said: ?It was a really good, fun day ? everyone enjoyed themselves and it was a great team building experience.

?We won our first race with a time of one minute seven seconds, we then improved throughout the day to win the final and set a new time record of one minute 34 seconds. We also won the Garden Centre challenge by beating St Peter?s by 0.94 seconds.?

The team is now set to compete in a national charity race in Nottingham later this month.
