Two boats for Newark Dragon Boat Festival now up for auction after two teams pull out

Two boats for the Newark Dragon Boat Festival are now up for auction.

Due to two teams no longer being able to participate, organisers are now using it as an opportunity to raise extra funds for nominated charities Beaumond House Hospice Care and the Children's Bereavement Centre in Newark.

The boats will go to the highest bidder so if you can get 11 people together for a day of fun and friendly competition, organisers want to here from you.

If your bid is accepted, payment will be required in full before Friday, September 17.

The Newark Dragon Boat Festival will take place on the River Trent by Riverside Park on Sunday, September 19.
