Charity champions row for cancer charity

A team of charity champions took to the water and paddled like crazy to raise money for a local cancer charity.
The team, made up of Merlin Housing Society staff, took part in the Bristol Dragon Boat Festival at the weekend to raise money for their charity of the year, the Tom Hunt Trust.
Merlin’s Communications Manager who took part in the event said: “It was a lot of fun, although it’s a shame we didn’t get better weather. We were pretty wet before we even stepped foot in the boat!”
The event is one of the events the society is taking part in to raise money for charity. Other events include a football tournament and the Bristol 10k.
The team was made up of Faye Galvin, Alexandra Jones, Rebecca Bailey, Kevin Crew, Dan Dowling, Stuart Widdowson, James Tong, Heather Stockwell, Rich Hall, Kay Rose, Kelly Ortu, Elizabeth Nichol, Andrew Haskins, Andrew Ledger, Jo Guppy, Sarah Moon, Zoe Moon and James Bailey.
