Edward Mellor swapped property for paddles as staff took part in the annual Dragon Boat Challenge to raise cash for the When You Wish Upon a Star foundation.

24 teams took to the freezing and treacherous waters of Salford Quays – many in impressive fancy dress attire – to compete for the title of Dragon Boat Champion 2014 which was eventually won by the Ard Un’s Crew.

More than £500 has been kindly donated by our staff, friends and clients, helping to raise around £20,000 for the charity, which grants amazing wishes to children across the UK with life-threatening illnesses.

There’s still time to donate; simply use our JustGiving page: www.justgiving.com/Edward-Mellor-Dragon. Don’t forgot to use GiftAid!

Next month we’ll be running the Big Stockport Run and are looking for a great local cause to raise money for. If you know of a charity we can help, please get in touch at [email protected].
