On Saturday 31st August, brave volunteers from our OneLife Suffolk team took to the water in Oulton Broad for the annual East Anglian Dragon Boat Festival.

Although the competition from 14 other crews was fierce, after a gruelling effort the OneLife team walked away as champions of the Mixed Team race.

Now in it’s 13th year, the Festival is one of the largest in the country and attracted over 300 spectators this year. As well as taking part in the main event and having boat loads (sorry) of fun, the NHS Health Checks team were also on site providing free NHS health checks to members of the public.

Well done to everyone who took part or came along to support the OneLife team. An especially big thank you goes to Ann Cottingham, Adult Weight Management Practitioner in Lowestoft, who rallied the troops and organising the team.

Chief Executive Paul Gately, who was part of the winning team, said

“What a great day and a great team effort… My training has started for next year!”


We’re holding you to that Paul!
