The crew who will paddle in the Queen’s Jubilee Pageant Flotilla on the 3rd. June 2012 are raring to go.
Hard training and preparation by all Paddlers for Life members has been undertaken over the early months of 2012.
Tony and Paul have helmed paddlers who have trained in beautiful, additional evening sessions.
Peter and Jane have provided their usual high standard of helming and coaching in regular Sunday paddling along with valuable input from Keni and other trainee helms.
June, Helen, Mags and others have worked hard to ensure special team kit is ready and sparkling!
Barbara will do her usual wonderful work to make sure our dragon heads look their best
and June has arranged flowers for the day.
Rob has created spray decks to help the boats cope with the conditions on the Thames.
Bill, John and Jack have put in hours of hard work to ensure the boats are maintained,
cleaned, waxed and looking their best.
The trustees and patrons have toiled behind the scenes ensuring Paddlers for Life meet the stringent criteria and requirements needed to be allowed to paddle in this prestigious event and arranging the logistics of getting crew, supporters and dragon boats down to the event in London.
All members both survivors and supporters have pitched in to make sure Paddlers for Life is prepared for this special event.
The crew who will paddle are excitedly looking forward to this event which has been great publicity for Paddlers for Life.
The crew are proud to be representing all members of Paddlers for Life who make the group such fun to be part of and we are truly thankful for everyone’s support.
