OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE PADDLE FOR READING
Spectators are invited to bring friends and family to the V&A Waterfront marina for the third annual Oxford-Cambridge Paddle to Read dragon boat race. The morning will be packed with friendly yet fierce competition as the two university publishing houses compete to raise funds for reading on Saturday, 30 November 2013 from 9am.
The day kicks off with a school vs school race, followed by two fun charity races. The publishing houses then gear up to go paddle-to-paddle in the tradition of the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race – the major international sporting occasion drawing millions of viewers from around the world.
A reading and activity corner will be available on the day to keep the kids entertained.
All proceeds generated will be used to purchase reading books for The Shine Centre’s language and literacy programmes. The Shine Centre is a non-profit organisation that provides support in literacy and language enrichment to children in Grades 2 and 3.
