Canary Wharf Contractors Fund ("CWCF") Dragon Boat

 3rd Jul 2015

Alongside our colleagues at E.P.Ceramics, E. Poole (masquerading as Hawaii 5 Oh No!) saw off the 22 strong competition to win the CWCF Dragon Boat Festival.  Rising from 18th place after the first heat, a little juggling of weight and might saw us into the top six after the second heat and competing in the final. 

Our competitors fought a worthy battle with all six boats passing the finish line within one second of each other.  Our success is a testament to the sheer grit and determination of our team and the boisterous encouragement of our loyal supporters who wore their lei with pride. The pictures speak for themselves ­ shocked, elated and just slightly merry (and that’s just our supporters). 

After the racing had been completed, CWCF presented a cheque for £10,000 to the Building Lives Foundation; a charity that enables young people from some of London’s most deprived communities to gain training and apprenticeships within the construction industry.  E. Poole are delighted to have been a part of this great event.
