On Sunday 10th June, XL Letting’s organised a charity event for Cancer Research UK. They had a go at dragon boating as they took on their annual Chester Dragon Boat Race along the River Dee. 3 years ago, the team at X1 started dragon boating with a significantly smaller team. 3 years later, with another 3 years experience in the student lettings sector, XL Lettings have expanded to fill not just one, but two dragon boats they decided to call Usain Bolt and Barracuda! After a long day dragon boating, the winner was eventually decided after Head of Marketing at XL Lettings, Eve won by a huge victory in the Bolt boat over Lorna, Branch Manager at the Manchester branch of X1 Lettings in the Barracuda boat!
Whilst competing against each other, their charity event also raised funds for Cancer Research UK who remain close to their hearts. In the past 2 years, two team members at X1 have undergone chemotherapy for Hodgkins Lymphoma, a form of cancer on the lymphatic system. In this event alone, X1 Lettings successfully raised an amazing £160.00 for Cancer Research UK. The team at XL Lettings have also put together a video highlighting their previous dragon boating charity events.
