Charity Dragon Boat Events

Anyone can take part!

Charity Dragon Boat Events - No experience necessary just plenty of team spirit.

Our Charity Dragon Boat Events are designed to raise much needed funds and create awareness of many charities around the country – while having fun! We work with charities such as Martin House Hospice, Sue Ryder, When You Wish, Macintyre, Cure Leukaemia and many more!

Charities always seek ways to fundraise and create events which will attract donations and bring much needed awareness… and this is it! NewWave Events will help you with promotion of the event and recommend ways to attract crews to maximise fundraising.

Our top tip – Involve your corporate and community supporters!

There are plenty of ways to fundraise before and on the day, such as seeking sponsorship per person/per crew, boat logo advertisements, raffle draws, even on the day with bucket donations… the supporters go as far as swimming in paddling pools full of jelly on a hot day! It is all about unique ideas!
