York's Dragon Boat Races - YO1 Radio Rules The Waves

 

YO1 Radio is delighted to be taking part in this year's Rotary Club of York Dragon Boat Races, taking place on SUNDAY 14th JULY 2024 on the River Ouse between Scarborough Railway Bridge and Lendal Bridge.

Last year we managed a VERY respectable THIRD PLACE - and raised some valuable funds for The Snappy Trust.

This year we aim to go one (or, preferably, TWO) better!

For 2024, we will be raising awareness and funds for THE THREE BEARS FOUNDATION - a local charity supporting research into pancreatic cancer. We hope you'll be able to help us support this very worthy cause!

Our YO1 Radio Rules The Waves team will feature some of our presenters, partners and friends from the Three bears. The rest of our team will be cheering on from the riverbank.

PLEASE COME ALONG AND SAY HELLO - AND SUPPORT US ON THE DAY!

Our Captain for the day, is our very own Gemma Taylor.

WE WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD THROW A FEW QUID IN OUR DIRECTION - AS OUR DONATION PAGE IS NOW OPEN AND  WILL REMAIN OPEN UNTIL 31st AUGUST. The links are at the top and bottom of this page.

Two-thirds of the funds we raise will go to The Three Bears Foundation, with the remainder to the Rotary charities.

Over the last 20 years, the Rotary Club of York Dragon Boat Races have raised over £1.4 million. A fantastic achievement.

We've set ourselves a target for this year at a more modest £2,000 - and we'd love to have your help in reaching that target!

If you'd like to support the cause, we'd love you to visit our 'Enthuse' fundraising page, by following the link below. Every donation, however small, will go to some fantastic local causes.

Thanks for your support. Here's the link .....
