Some of the families in the LS29 Group have benefited greatly from the support and services offered by Martin House Children’s Hospice, and we decided we wanted to show our appreciation by giving something back to the charity.

On Sunday 15th May 2016, we took part in the Dragon Boat Race at Roundhay Park in Leeds, with our team ‘The LS29 Arkful of Animals’.  The sun shone, and it was a brilliant fun day out – IMG_9127 IMG_9128LS29 families came along for the day to lend their support and cheer on our team.

Led by Noah (aka Michelle) on the drums, our arkful of animals reached the semi finals, and finished in a very respectable 12th place out of 44 teams.  We were also delighted to win the prize for the best dressed team – thanks to our costume designers Jules, Fiona and Michelle.

More importantly, we raised over £2,000 in sponsorship for Martin House – so a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored us.
