Ipswich Dragon Boat Race

1st June @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Our 5th Dragon Boat Race returns to Ipswich Waterfront, it’s bigger and better! It’s colourful, it’s fun and we want to make a splash!

On the 1st of June 2024, we have 34 boats taking part this year, where they will take part in heats culminating in a grand finale! Bringing entertainment and festivities to the quay.

The money raised will go towards our vital specialist support service, supporting children in Suffolk. The waiting list continues to grow, the rate of disclosures in is at an all time high and we want to be there for each and every child that has been a victim of sexual abuse.
