Woking & Sam Beare Hospice Dragon Boat Race 2016

Monday, 4 July 2016 at 12.00AM

A team of 15 from Trident Honda entered a boat in this year's Woking & Sam Beare Hospice's Dragon Boat Race on Sunday 3rd July. Trident sponsors the event, as part of our Gold Sponsors' Package, so we felt it only right that we put in a team to compete at the event!

Trident Otters perform brilliantly! -- Managing Director, Richard Roberts.

None of the team had ever done Dragon Boat racing before, so we entered into it not knowing quite what to expect! Well, cutting to the chase, we didn't win, but were very proud of putting in a respectable first time performance - only 9 seconds behind the winning team, who happened to be a rowing club! To be fair that put us in 8th place overall, out of the 12 teams entered, which just shows how competitive and close the day's action was. All of the team have already said they are up for improving their performance next year, so we will be back to see if we can knock some of that 9 second gap off next year!

Dragon Boat Fun Day Launch

Thursday, 7 April 2016 at 12.00AM

Woking & Sam Beare Hospices have officially launched their Dragon Boat Fun Day, sponsored by Trident Honda, taking place on Sunday 3rd July 2016 at Goldsworth Park Lake. As always, teams will be paddling against each other and the clock to raise vital funds for the Hospices. New for this year alongside the Dragon Boat racing, there's even more going on with fun and entertainment for all the family.

Having recently launched a new three year partnership with the Hospices and as the headline sponsor for 2016, Trident Honda have entered a group of 14 staff who will be competing in the event this summer.

Richard Roberts, Managing Director at Trident Honda said:

Trident are delighted to continue to support the Hospices, when we asked the team if they would like to take part they jumped at the chance! On the day we will have at least 14 on board, there is a threat that I might have to be in the boat, and knowing the team we will be doing everything we can to be closer to the front of the fleet than the back!
