An important day in the calendar of Paddlers for Life Windermere, Eye Dotting.
The fith day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar is traditionally the time to ‘dot the eyes’ of the dragons to awaken their spirit. Ruth related the origins of this tradition and Judy, Sian and Chris dotted the eyes of Phyllis, Lucy and Mary as members looked on.
Paddlers for Life Windermere often use this day to thank supporters for their role in helping ensure everyone can paddle safely.
Also we send a huge ‘Thank you!’ to Cumberland Building Society for their donation of £250.
The money will be used to help fund our Tenth Anniversary film celebrating ten years of dragon boat paddling.
The film will be used to promote our activities at breast cancer clinics and support centres.
