Last month, 11 members of the Briggs & Forrester Living Team* took part in the Berkeley Foundation Dragon Boat Race. Having won the race in 2016, the defending champions were among 32 teams who entered.
After a gruelling race, the team achieved second place after being pipped at the post by the Berkeley Team, who won by less than a third of a second!
The event raised £50,500 which was then matched by the Berkeley Foundation, bringing the total amount raised to a fantastic £101,000 for the charities which are sponsored by the foundation.
