Dragon Boat Race 2019
Published 09 May, 2019
This year SB Components and Priden Engineering are proud to be taking part in the 2019 Dragon Boat Race in order to raise money for The Sue Ryder Hospice. The event will be held at Peterborough Rowing Club, Thorpe Meadows and we will be entering two teams of 11 men and women to compete at the festival on Saturday 8th June 2019.
Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice is the only specialist palliative care inpatient unit in Peterborough. Sue Ryder are also the only unit with a multi-disciplinary team which includes doctors, nurses, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, complementary therapy, bereavement counsellors, and psychological and spiritual support. This means they can care for the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of their patients, whether they go to Sue Ryder for symptom management as part of their palliative care or for end of life care. That care can be given in their 20-bed hospice or in the community thanks to Thorpe Hall Hospice at Home team – and also extends to the loved ones of their patients too. Thorpe Hall also runs specialist day services open to people living with long-term conditions. They can join in activities and outings helping to boost confidence, aid rehabilitation and offer social opportunities.
Last year SB Components and Priden Engineering raised an impressive £5000.00 for the charity and we are really proud that out of all the companies who took part we managed to raise the most money.
