Fitzwilliam Hospital Pacemakers make a splash

Fitzwilliam Hospital Pacemakers make a splash at the Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival

Congratulations to the Fitzwilliam Hospital Pacemakers who entered the Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival on Saturday 9th June, in aid of Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.

It was the 20th anniversary for the festival with a record number of teams, a total of 48, entering this year’s event at the Peterborough Rowing Club. The teams raised an estimated £30,000 for Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.

The Fitzwilliam Pacemakers won the fastest mixed team, and overall 3rd in the competition. The team included administration staff, a porter, a physiotherapist, hospital managers, a consultant and the chief executive for Ramsay Health Care. 

Staff and consultants came along to cheer on their team, making a great family day out for the staff.

Well done, a fantastic result for a great local cause!
