• Fundraising Events

    The Bridge Trust has to raise over half of its income from the support of the local community and local community fundraising events.  So do you have a fundraising idea that could help us? Are you holding an event and looking for a cause to support?  If so we’d love to hear from you as every pound raised helps us continue our work with local homeless people.

Tonbridge Dragon Boat Race

Tonbridge Dragon Boat Race

Places are £15pp and we ask that participants aim to raise £50 (or more!) in sponsorship for our work with local people who are homeless

As previous years, due to the width of the river, not all boats will race together, but in heats –  very exciting for competitors and participants alike as there is an ever-changing leader board right up to the end.  Each team will get to race at least 3 times, and the whole event will be cover a 6 to 8 hour period.  Each boat will be steered by a professional from Dragon Boat Events, so all participants need to do is focus on paddling!

There will be time for instruction and practice supplied by Dragon Boat Events, and of course trophies to the winning teams. There is also an additional trophy for the best dressed team! 

Throughout the day the Tonbridge Medieval  Fair will also be taking place on the castle grounds, participants can go and attend the fair between heats.  All in all it should be a fun day!
