Raise Money for MIND via LRWA Dragon Boat Regatta

£1,360 of £1,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 7 months
Created January 10, 2019
The Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Association (LRWA) has announced the launch of a new charity event, which will help to raise vital funds for the mental health charity, Mind.

Open to everyone in the roofing and waterproofing industry, The LRWA Charity Dragon Boat Regatta will take place on 2nd May 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.

A number of teams will battle it out on the hotel’s lake in dragon boats each comprising 10 paddlers and 1 drummer. The teams will be challenged to race in a series of heats with the four fastest going through to a semi-final. The top two will then go head to head in a final race and the chance to win a prize. All sponsorship money raised by participants will be donated directly to Mind.

The event is the second fundraising initiative launched by the LRWA to help raise funds for the mental health charity. The association also raised £1,385 at the LRWA Awards and Gala Dinner in November 2018 thanks to donations from guests.

Sarah Spink, CEO of the LRWA said: “In our 40th anniversary year, we’re delighted to be in a position to launch this exciting new fundraising initiative. This is the first time we’ve organised a charity event of this size and which is open to non members.

“It’s a great opportunity for companies and their clients to network and have fun, but most importantly, raise money for a very worthwhile cause. Mental health is a major issue affecting the entire construction industry and that’s one of the main reasons why our members chose Mind as our dedicated charity this year.

“The LRWA awards helped to raise a fantastic amount of money in 2018 and we hope the regatta can generate even more this year.  Any donation will help, thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to our industry."

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
