A Titanic battle on the Lagan for NSPCC!

Gather your team for NSPCC Northern Ireland’s Viking Boat Races, and prepare for a Titanic battle on the River Lagan!

The hordes will hit Cutters Wharf, Stranmillis, at 12pm on Sunday 6 May for the annual event.

NSPCC community fundraising manager, Paul Montgomery, said: “Over the last 12 years, teams of 10 have invaded the Lagan in Viking long-boats to test their strength, speed and endurance, while making a difference for vulnerable children and young people in Northern Ireland.

“As we prepare to recruit adventurers for this expedition, sponsored by Cutters Wharf and Barefoot Wine, you are invited to take your place for a raucous day out marking Belfast’s Titanic year.”

Battle against the clock to be the winner of your category, with the two fastest teams going head-to-head for ultimate glory.

Paul continued: “We rely on public support to help us continue our work with some of the most vulnerable children in Northern Ireland. Together we can help shape a society where abuse doesn’t go unchallenged, where children are empowered to seek out help, and where every call for support can be answered.”

Team members must be aged 18 or over, and teams can be male, female or mixed (with no more than six men in a mixed team). The entry fee, to be raised through sponsorship, is £200 per team of 10, or alternatively raise £400 and receive a T Shirt and tuck into lots of delicious barbecued food and accompanying drinks as a reward for your exertions!
