Returning for another year of action-packed, free, family fun, the St Catherine’s Hospice Dragon Boat Festival will be taking place on Sunday 8 September at Tilgate Park, Crawley.
Our dynamic crews are uniting to support St Catherine’s. Join us for our 17th annual Dragon Boat Festival and help support people in your local community who are living with a terminal illness. You can be sure of an exciting day with a fantastic family-friendly atmosphere, as you go head to head with over 30 local businesses in 40ft dragon boats - cheered on by thousands of spectators on the lakeside.
We’re a local charity with a big ambition: to help everyone face death informed, supported and pain free. Providing expert hospice care, we’re there for people in West Sussex and East Surrey when life comes full circle. All our care is free of charge. As a charity, we’re supported by people like you who raise around £7 million each year so that we can offer our tailored care when people need us the most.
All you need to get involved in this oar-some event is a crew of 13 to 20 sailors, plenty of enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in - and who knows, the winners’ trophy could be within your grasp! We ask that all teams commit to raising a minimum of £1,000 in sponsorship - which is just £50 per person when you enter a full team. We’ll help you set up a team JustGiving page and support you with fundraising so you can have fun and smash your fundraising targets.
