On the 6th of July the team at OE took part in the Wakefield Rotary Dragon Boat Race at Pugneys Country park in Wakefield. We raced in three heats and placed first in two of the three. We took part in the event to raise money for Wakefield Rotary and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Our team are raising money for three charities. The first is Yorkshire Air Ambulance, a rapid response air emergency service that serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres. The second is helfende Hände Oberberg, a charity helping seriously ill children and their families in Oberberg. The third is Rotary Charities.
On the 29th of June we took part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge completing a 39.2km walk in 12 hours. As well as this, in August a team of seventeen from the team will be cycling a huge 460km from OE Electrics Ltd (UK) to our new subsidiary OE GmbH (Gummersbach). The cycle will extend over five days with a celebratory evening concluding the cycle and celebrating the success of our launch in Germany.
