Western Towing Nominated for Local Award

Western Towing are proud to announce they have been nominated in the Business Contribution to Sport Category in the Express and Echo Sports Awards 2011. Exe-Calibre Dragon Boat Club is a water sports club based in Exeter, Devon. They are one of the most diverse sports clubs in Exeter, if not the whole of the South West. The club welcomes and encourages male and female paddlers of all ages, sizes and backgrounds.

The Express and Echo quote ” Western Towing developed and built a double boat trailer to allow the Exe-Calibre dragon boat club to compete all over the country and succeed in a dramatic fashion. The trailer was designed, and is serviced, for free. Without this, Exe-Calibre would not have been able to take two teams to represent the city all over the country. This allowed new paddlers to fall in love with the sport and the club feels that without this support it could not expand and allow new people to experience dragon boat racing.”

The Awards Ceremony is to be held on 19th January 2012 at Sandy Park, Exeter. We’ll let you know how we get on
