Organiser of the Lincoln Dragon Boat Race, Alex Bennett of Ringrose Law, said: “The event is such a fun day for all the teams and spectators. If you are looking for a new company challenge, a fundraising activity or just to try something different, then give it a go!

“Not only can we promise a full day of fun, but we will be helping raise money for two really important local charities in Lincolnshire and helping make a difference to our community.
