An oar-some day for team AssurityShank Redemption at St Catherine’s Hospice Dragon Boat Festival!

26 September 2017

Assurity Consulting, a leading independent workplace compliance consultancy specialising health, safety and environmental solutions, took a team of sixteen employees along to the Dragon Boat Festival in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice, held at Tilgate Park in Crawley on Sunday 10th September 2017.

For the second year running they entered a team for the event, this year named ‘AssurityShank Redemption’ dressed as prisoners in orange jumpsuits they were set to beat their 4th place running last year!

Whilst the day started off dry, by 11.00am the rain came down and did not stop for the rest of the event. The team did not let this dampen their spirits and they gave each race their all.

Throughout the event their timing had dramatically improved and they made it into the final out of 36 boats!

The atmosphere was tense, with all teams slightly tired but still raring to go, they put in all their effort, and rowed in sync as fast as they could go! Their efforts paid off and the team came in at second place with an amazing time of 1 minute.

The team was awarded a trophy which has been put up in pride of place in the office! Albeit the fun day that the team had, the main reason the event was held was in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice in Crawley.

St Catherine's is an amazing local charity who provides expert hospice care, for people in West Sussex and East Surrey when life comes full circle.

St Catherine’s is one of Assurity Consulting’s charity partners for 2017 and, on top of coming second, team AssurityShank Redemption were delighted to raise a whopping £1175 for the charity – a big thank you to everyone who donated to a very worthy cause!
