Two Wirquin teams battle it out against each other in last year’s charity boat race.

Wirquin together to support charity

Published:  15 June, 2015

Wirquin staff will be taking part in the Doncaster Charity Dragon Boat Race on 11 July. The sanitary equipment specialist is entering ‘Team Wirquin Together’ to compete against other local businesses and raise money for a local cancer charity.

The 11-crew members working in operations, sales, and marketing, are already in training under their captain, Nick Richards, head of marketing, and drummer, Gwenhael Le Coent, managing director. Colleagues are generously sponsoring them to help raise money for the Aurora charity to support local people affected by cancer.

Mr Le Coent said: “This is a fun event to raise some serious funds for a local charity and to get involved with local businesses. Lots of Wirquin staff will be supporting the event by donating funds and cheering their colleagues on during the race.”
