Wirquin raise funds for Children’s Hospital

An enthusiastic team from Wirquin Ltd has raised funds for Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Doncaster Rotary Club by taking part in a Dragon Boat Race.

The event, which has now run for 9 consecutive years, was the St George’s Dragon Boat Challenge held at Lakeside, Doncaster in July.  The team of 10 paddlers and 1 drummer from Wirquin competed in a 30 foot Dragon Boat and had to complete the 250m course twice.  The fastest 9 teams then battled it out in the semi finals and the top 3 in the final.  Denton Nicholls was the winner and crowned the Dragon Boat Challenge Champions of 2018.  Wirquin has taken part in the fun event for the past 5 years and they named the team this year the “Wirqueens and Kings’ who came 13th place out of 24 and raised over £400 for charity.  A great day was had by all.

Wirquin is a family run, leading European sanitary equipment manufacturer offering the Celmac and Macdee brands in the UK.  They provide installers with a wide range of innovatively designed products including toilet seats, flushing mechanisms, frames, cisterns, wastes, connectors and wetroom products.  All are designed and produced to be quick and easy to install and carry all necessary quality standards.
