MARTINEZ & PARTNERS WERE A ROARING SUCCESS AT CHARITY DRAGON BOAT RACE
Basingstoke insurance brokers, Martinez and Partners won a charity boat race held to raise money for children with heart conditions.
Their team of 13, dressed as superheroes, beat 11 other teams competing at the Children’s Heart Federation’s annual Dragon Boat Race.
The local business sponsored the event at which hundreds of parents and children attended to fundraise for the UK’s leading children’s heart charity.
Rachel Evans, who works for the insurance brokers and has a heart condition, is passionate about Martinez and Partners supporting CHF’s work.
Rachel Evans at Martinez and Partners says: “The Children’s Heart Federation is a charity close to my heart and we were delighted not only to sponsor the Dragon Boat Race, but also to get our staff taking part.
“Martinez and Partners are very pleased that the event helped raise vital funds to support the 5,000 children a year born with heart conditions. Our firm will continue to work with CHF to help the charity provide life-changing services to these children and their families”.
Samantha Johnson from the Children’s Heart Federation says “We’re very grateful for the generosity and great spirit shown by the staff at Martinez and Partners. Their invaluable support helped made the Dragon Boat Race event a success”.
