 Girl paddle power!

On the Summer Solstice, June 21 2015 Westin’s Sales & Marketing Manager Ann Onions joined her colleagues in the Worcester Busters breast cancer survivors dragon boat team, to push their paddles through the waters of Lake Windermere in the Lake District.

The 16 strong crew of women aged between 30-60 years completed a 10.5 mile paddle the entire length of Windermere. The boat was formed of a crew combined of Worcester Busters and a Manchester based breast cancer survivors’ crew called Paddlers for Life. The Windemere based Paddlers for Life also entered a crew of breast cancer survivors and kindly let Ann and her crew borrow one of their boats.

Ann says:

“I am so proud of how hard everyone has worked, ten and a half miles is no mean feat! Dragon boat racing has become a real passion of mine and to paddle Windermere with these inspirational women was really special.”
