Teams from across Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust enjoyed a fantastic day of competition on the river at Headlight's first major fundraiser -the Dragon Boat Race. The event saw 5 teams battle it out to be crowned the champions, but it was the Headlight Pioneers who took the title. Second place went to Hadouken and third place to the Mostly Money People.
The weather was incredibly kind, with glorious sunshine to enjoy the Boathouse's beer garden and a cold drink! The event was a family affair with a bouncy castle, unclimbable ladders and fair games to keep the children entertained. We had lovely comments from participants and their families, with everyone saying how enjoyable the event was.
The teams raised an incredible £3,200 in sponsorship and raised awareness of our new charity and new name for the AWP Charitable Fund. We hope that next year will be even bigger and better!
