The Booker Dragon Race is an exciting new addition to the GroceryAid 2024 fundraising calendar, and the charity’s first partnership event with the wholesaler.

The event will bring together over 40 teams, racing to be crowned Dragon Boat champion as they row to the beat of the drum. Dragon Boat racing is one of the most exciting and inclusive water sports in the UK today, with Chinese origins dating back over 2,000 years.

This event will be situated on the River Thames with the stunning backdrop of Bisham Abbey. Teams will enjoy a day of exciting but friendly competition, and networking with industry colleagues. The event village will host sponsor activations and entertainment, followed by a BBQ and prize giving after the racing.

Each boat takes 10 people and can either be purchased as two teams of five or one team of 10. Participants can also host a Booker colleague in their boat for the day.
