A team of staff and parents from the Nursery will be taking part in the annual When You Wish Upon A Star Dragon Boat Challenge!
This is the third time the Nursery has taken part in the Dragon Boat Challenge. Last year saw them come second in the heats and third in the final – and the team is keen to hang on to their podium position!
The event will take place at Salford Quays. The Nursery has drummed up the support of sixteen rowers to take to the water on Saturday the 16th August 2014, and they will be one of thirty-six boats taking part in the race.
The aim of the challenge is to raise money for When You Wish Upon A Star. The funds from the Dragon Boat Challenge will go towards sending a group of children from the Greater Manchester area to Lapland to meet Father Christmas.
Last year, the Nursery’s fundraising helped to send thirty families to Lapland in time for Christmas, and they are hoping to match their total once again.
