Whether it's motivation you're looking for, or a fresh challenge, take a look below for some of the upcoming events you can get involved in to raise money for the Trussell Trust.  

Featured event - The Trussell Trust Dragon Boat Race

6 June 2024, London

The Trussell Trust Dragon Boat challenge is the perfect team building event in the heart of London.‚Äč

This ancient and fascinating sport requires no previous experience and caters for all ages and abilities in one crew. 

Each boat entered requires one team drummer and ten paddlers. Teams will race in heats down the dock and the team with the fastest combined time will qualify for the head-to-head final! After the race, there’ll be a prize giving ceremony on the dock, followed by a BBQ and refreshments for all teams. There’ll be prizes for the best dressed and best named teams too! So even if you’re not a competitive racer, there’s so much fun to be had. Dragon Boating is exciting, motivating, social, fun, and competitive. The perfect summer team building activity!

Last year, Kier teams did us proud and finished second overall. Help us go one better and be crowned the Trussell Trust champions this year!
