Around 350 people took part in the event at Rutland Water. The regatta raised over £125,000 for Water Aid, a charity which has for a long time been championed by Anglian Water.

Danaher & Walsh's team of Sue Southam, Steve Douglas, Tom Ely and Fay Meredith were tasked with building a raft, then racing it against other teams on Britain's largest man-made body of water.

The team finished a respectable third, with the improvised craft remaining intact for the duration of the race.

WaterAid is an international non-governmental organisation, focused on providing water, sanitation and hygiene in developing nations. The Rutland Regatta is just one in a programme of events run by Anglian Water to raise money for the charity.
