A canal side team practice.On Saturday 22 June, Mitchells & Butlers entered a 14 person strong team into the annual Brindley Place Dragonboat Race Festival in aid of Help Harry Help Others.

The team 'Dragon T'ales' had an extremely successful run getting through to the semi finals. They also attained the second best time overall in the heats. Sadly however, they lost their semi final race by a mere 52 milliseconds. That is what you call an edge of the seat race!

Although the team did not make it through to the final, they have still raised over £1,000 for charity which is an amazing accomplishment in itself.

The team showing 110% effort.Team member Henry Bagley has said: "Everyone in the team put in 110% on the day. Here's to bringing the trophy home next year!"
