Oar-some effort from team Meetupcall

On Saturday Meetupcall entered a team into the 9th annual Doncaster Dragon Boat Challenge.

Despite having no previous rowing experience and following a practise run that saw the team finish last out of 23 teams, the 'Meet'E's Revenge' team summoned the spirit of the 1988 Jamaican bobsled team to knock 20 seconds off their time in the second heat to earn the respect of their fellow dragon boaters.

Sadly it was not enough to qualify for the semi-finals, however their efforts were not in vain as the team managed to raise £480 for charity.

Donations can still be made until 1st October 2018 by visiting our donations page, with the money raised going towards Rossington Hall Riding for the Disabled - a fantastic charity whose horses and ponies provide therapy, achievement and enjoyment for people with disabilities across the region.
