The Bradford Dragon Boat Festival 2020 is comming. Now is the time to get Involved!

Welcome

Thank you for allowing us the chance to present a very real and unique opportunity to change the lives of others for the better and make a measurable difference to wonderful and worthy causes. 

We are excited to present our plans for the Bradford Dragon Boat Festival 2020, and with the help of your valued contribution we are aiming to get to our target of raising £30,000 to put this festival on. 

Meeting this goal is vitally important to bring about the very basic needs and structure of the festival.  Note that The Bradford Dragon Boat Festival is run by volunteers in their own valuable time. 

The Event

The Event is the Bradford Dragon Boat Festival. The Festival is split over three days and six events.

Day 1 is the Youth Championships.

This is two events of set categories. The day race is 33 teams of Primary, Junior and Senior. The evening race is 12 teams of Junior and Senior. Teams of up yo 20, race a precise length, paddling in unison and precision to their drummers beat. Each team has a minimum of three races with the fastest overall times qualify the top for a fourth race to determine the final podium positions. The fastest time on the day is the winner… Teams are racing themselves to beat themselves, others are just in the way.

All teams are encouraged to raise money and awareness for the Lord Mayor’s nominated charities.

The last three years we have welcomed our Team GB U25’s showcasing the sport and participating.

On site there are other attractions, stalls and food as well as stage perfomrnaces. Most of these performances are from the youth organisations involved.

Corporate Social Responsibility

The Bradford Dragon Boat Festival presents a fantastic opportunity for businesses and organisations not just to showcase their dragon boating talent and skills but to actively show how they support their local community through their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy.

CSR is about companies and organisations taking responsibility and playing their part in society by giving back to that very society. A large part of that is through fundraising for worthy causes or supporting the community/organisations/initiatives that are doing just that.

If everyone works together, companies, customers and communities can and will thrive, and relationships with stakeholders at all levels will be strengthened. Working with brilliant organisations who take their CSR seriously (look at the logos of some of those we are working with), the Bradford Dragon Boat Festival has grown rapidly in just 4 years and has brought the whole community together as one big team. The ‘feel good factor’ is spreading to neighbouring cities bringing in more tourists and strengthening the local economy.

Our young people are also becoming more engaged and some are starting to represent our country in international competitions. Not only do we now have local pride but also national pride! By supporting the Festival you are investing in our society and play a vital part in helping to improve opportunity, inclusion and health and wellbeing of our community.

Thank you for being a CSR Champion and

Welcome to the team!
