As a company, Kingsley Roofing are keen to help charitable causes whenever possible and so when the opportunity came up to participate in the Shoreham Riverfest charity Dragonboat competition we jumped at the chance.
Our team of novice rowers consisted of staff members, family and friends as well as one of the volunteers from our chosen local charity, Re-Loved.
In total, 16 teams were competing for the trophy with the racing taking place over 220 metres of the River Adur. All teams competed in 3 rounds of racing with the four fastest teams going through to the final.
We were delighted to make it through to the final and proud to say that after a hard fought race Kingsley Roofing won the competition with a winning time of 39 seconds and a speed of 8 knots!
