Dragon Boat Race

Mailbox Birmingham, 7 Commercial Street, BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, B1 1RS
Mailbox Canalside


Birmingham Women's and Children's Hospital Charity is set to host its inaugural Dragon Boat Race at Mailbox this September, making the most of the city's iconic canals and raising money for the two hospitals.

Taking place on Saturday 25th September, the race will see 23 boats compete against one another, with several of Birmingham's biggest businesses set to take part. Each team will compete in a series of races, which will culminate in one being crowned the first ever Birmingham Women's and Children's Hospital Charity Dragon Boat Champions.

Kicking off at 10.30am, each team of 16 will participate in a series of 200m races, whittling them down to one overall winning boat. Teams will then be able to reward their efforts at one of Mailbox's many eateries surrounding Canalside.

Helen Miles, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Birmingham Women's and Children's Hospital Charity, said: "We're so excited to be holding our first ever Dragon Boat race this year and absolutely thrilled that it will be staged in such an iconic Birmingham location. Mailbox provides the perfect backdrop and we can't wait to see it filled with our fantastic supporters, rowing to raise vital funds for our patients."

David Pardoe, head of retail, marketing and tenant engagement at the Mailbox, said: "We're proud to be playing a part in fundraising for such a fantastic cause. Birmingham Women's and Children's Hospital is an institution in the city, we're pleased to do anything we can do to help raise valuable funds.

"Canalside at Mailbox is the perfect place for spectators to come down and watch the race, so it's set to be a fun day out for the whole family."
