Staff at Newport House have taken part in a Dragon Boat Race, as part of their fundraising activities.  It took part on the River Wye, at Monmouth, and Newport were racing in aid of St David's Foundation Hospice Care.  They are still collecting in the money and expect to raise at least £200.

Kris Broome from the charity St David's said: "Thank you again for co-ordinating your group in this Charity Event. I know from personal experience how hard it is to get 15 people in one place for a certain time.  Your support for this event and the funds generated will help us provide individual care to many thousands of patients and their families living with South Wales. As a result of your fundraising efforts we will ensure that we continue to tailor our care to our patients and so allow them the dignity they deserve when facing the most difficult time of their lives."

Newport team were called "Smiths Oars" and although they didn't win, they made a great effort on the day!
