For the third year running this exciting Dragon Boat Racing event is coming to Reading. A day filled with fun and energy, it's a great chance to take part in something a little different.


Full training is given on the day and your instructor will be on hand throughout to talk you through everything you need to know.

Who can take part

Teams can be made up of up to 20 people, but your crew will need a minimum of 10 paddlers and 1 drummer to compete. We are looking for individuals to join our Daisy's Dream team, or you can create a crew of your own.

You need to be aged at least 16 on race day to be a paddler, and if you are aged between 16 and 18 you will need a parent or legal guardian to give their consent. The drummer can be aged 12 or over, and again, parental consent must be given.  

Costs and fundraising target

Entry is from just £23 per team member if you are organising your own boat, or it is free to join the Daisy's Dream team which has been kindly sponsored by Oracle Storage Systems in Newbury. Both options have a minimum fundraising commitment of £50 per person.

We rely on community fundraisers like you to continue our valuable work with bereaved families across Berkshire, and so we'd like to support your fundraising as much as we can.

You can now create a personalised online giving page right here on our website, which is a great platform for encouraging people to donate. We also have lots of free fundraising tools available for you to download or alternatively, you can order a Fundraising Toolkit below. This includes a printed copy of our fundraising toolkit, together with a selection of fundraising merchandise such as pens, balloons, badges etc. to help you raise as much money as you can for Daisy's Dream. 

This year we are also really pleased to be able to offer Daisy's Dream t-shirts for you to wear on the day. We have four sizes available, and they can be purchased using the form below.
