On Saturday 19th August, members of the team from across our Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire offices joined forces and took to the water, following some fantastic coaching from St Neots Dragon Boat Team, for St Neots Dragon Boat Festival 2023.
Facing competition from a host of other businesses based in and around the town, our strategy – not dissimilar from how we work day-to-day – was to use the right people for the job, to work in sync (without sinking the boat), and ultimately, to deliver results!!
Our crew gave it their all, through three (very warm!) heats on the day, and put up a good fight, but on this occasion we missed out on a place in the finals. Still, all those involved – participants and supporters – had great fun!
Joe Kokotka, who took on the role of Crew Captain, said “We had a great day representing George Hay out on the water, and competing against other local businesses, all for a number of great causes!
“With St. Neots being in the middle of two of our office locations – Huntingdon and Biggleswade – and with many of our team living in the town, this was the perfect opportunity for us to get involved in a local, community-focused event.
“Whilst we didn’t make it to the finals, we pulled together as a team and showed great spirit and determination throughout our races, and we all really enjoyed ourselves!”
