The Stickyeyes team will be paddling for glory in the annual dragon boat race, which sees teams from across Yorkshire and beyond compete in a series of heats, before one is crowned the champion.

And to ensure that they make a splash with the crowds, the team will be donning fancy dress that takes its inspiration from the Disney hit ‘The Little Mermaid’, as chosen by their office colleagues.

Stickyeyes’ entry in the Dragon Boat Race is the latest step in Stickyeyes’ support for the charity, which has so far raised thousands of pounds for the children’s hospice. Stickyeyes staff have previously taking part in various events to support Martin House, including the Leeds Abbey Dash and various cooking competitions.

The Stickyeyes team consists of: Gavin Dickinson, Jonathan Hemingway, Phil Kissane, Jamie Shields, James Pierechod, Raoul Devers, Louise Bannersten, Richard Hird, Anne-Christine Charigault and team captain, Marion Meudal.

“We have been supporting Martin House for almost year now and it is a really important charity for us," explained Marion. "It helps families who have a child with a life limiting condition to live a life as normal as possible, together, by providing support and care for each individual.

“This charity relies only on people’s donations so it is even more important for us to make this event as big as possible.”

The Stickyeyes team is hoping to raise £1,000 from this year’s Dragon Boat Race and donations are gratefully received at https://www.justgiving.com/Team-Stickyeyes. Alternatively, you can donate by text by texting “STICK55 £[amount]” to 70070.
