The Webbs Garden Centres group has won the Dragon Boat Race in aid of Greenfingers for the third year running.
The Webbs’ team finished in a record one minute and 15 seconds during Greenfingers’ annual Dragon Boat Race at Wicksteed Park, Kettering last week.
Chief executive Boyd Douglas-Davies said: "We were thrilled to have finished the race in first place. To qualify for the final, each team had to race three qualifying trials to establish the fastest times, the three fastest teams battled it out to find the winner.
"We were up against some formidable opponents, including Frosts Garden Centres, its team came second in one minute and 22 seconds, and Scotsdales Garden Centre, which finished third in one minute and 27 seconds."
Greenfingers CEO Deborah Skillicorn said: "The 2010 Dragon Boat Race was a superb success. This year nine teams took part in the event including participants from Poplars Nursery & Garden Centre, Hillier Nursery & Garden Centres, William Sinclair, GLEE – the UK’s largest horticultural industry exhibition, Garden & Leisure and Ambius.
"We are currently collecting all of the sponsor money and counting it up to find out how much we have raised from the event but I’m delighted everyone had a fantastic day."
