Fund-raisers are being urged to get on board for Peterborough’s annual Dragon Boat Festival.

The plea came at the launch of this year event at Thorpe Hall Hospice, in Peterborough.

Pictured is fund-raiser Nilesh Patel in the Thorpe Hall boat on the hospice’s east terrace.

The launch took place amid fluttering flags, Chinese dragon costumes and an authentic drum to provide a taste of the festival at Peterborough Rowing Club in Thorpe Meadows on 13 June.

The festival will raise funds for the Thorpe Hall Capital Appeal that still needs £2.5 million to build a new hospice.
