Join Team Orange at the Al-Noor Boat Race in Redbridge, London, for an epic Dragon Boat race for charity! Sign up as an individual, or a full boat of up to 17 people, and race to raise money for our Emergency Response appeal on Saturday 19th June 2021!

Registration fee: £25          Min Sponsorship £100


Have fun, get active and do good

The Al-Noor Boat Race is all about bringing the community together for a variety of great causes – it’ll be a great summer’s day of racing, raising money and enjoying the sunshine.

Boat races are a great part of British heritage, and Dragon Boat racing comes from Southern China, which we think is a brilliant symbol of how this race brings together thousands of people from different faiths and backgrounds for a fantastic community day out.

No experience is needed – you can sign up individually or as a team of up to 17 riders with Penny Appeal, and get rowing on the day! There will be female and male Dragon Boats on the day for Team Orange, and you can join one of them, or sign up as an all-male or all-female group, so sign up individually, or get together your team from the office, club members or business colleauges and join us for a fun packed day.

When you take place, you’ll be raising money for our Emergency Response appeal, helping people in crises like the Syrian war and the Yemeni famine to survive.


It costs just £25 to sign up individually, and you’ll need to raise a minimum of £100 for Penny Appeal.

To sign up as a group of up to 17 people, you’ll need to pay £500 to register your boat, and fundraise £2000 together.

Spaces are limited – don’t miss out on this great day out!

Sign up today from just £25!
