Staff from Marsden Building Society took to the water in Skipton Rotary Club’s Dragon Boat Race on Sunday, May 20th, and raised more than £600 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

They trained in the Nelson Marsden branch on a rowing machine provided by Pendle Leisure Trust, clocking up nearly 90,000 miles in one day.

Rob Pheasey, Marsden Chief Executive, said: “We were thrilled to take part and raise money for a fantastic charity.

“The day was a great success so thank you to Skipton Rotary Club, Pendle Leisure Trust, team members and customers.”
