Dragons get SOS Call!!!


The crew of SOS Bus NI has called on two dragons and the local community to help raise much needed funds for the services that SOS and its many volunteers provide.

The team at SOS has organised its first Community Dragon Boat Race on the River Lagan on Saturday 29th September 2012, with a special perpetual cup and medals for the winners up for grabs.

In addition to the competition, a variety of activities are being provided to guarantee fun for everyone attending the event.  The location enjoys fantastic views over the Lagan where refreshments can be enjoyed at the Johnson Coffee Dock. The event will start at 10.30am with races continuing throughout the day.

Philip Mills, Group Sales Director at Johnson Brothers who are supporting the event said, “We are very pleased to be supporting this event and providing the Johnsons Coffee Dock, to help in raising funds for SOS Bus NI and the valuable service provided by the many volunteers involved”.

Together, SOS working with the emergency services makes a real difference to the most vulnerable and needy on the streets of Belfast. All monies raised at the event will benefit both the people helped by SOS and partner statutory agencies, helping to save even more lives and free up essential services in the community.
