Blum to raise money for Age UK

Furniture fittings manufacturer Blum UK will be taking part in a dragon boat race to raise money for charity Age UK , at Willen Lake in Milton Keynes on June 25.

A 16-strong team of Blum crew members will paddle a 40ft boat, complete with a drummer at the front beating time and a helm at the tail to steer a straight course.

The Blum team, called the Buk-aneers, hopes to raise £1,000 by the end of June as well as helping local residents  understand what Blum has to offer.

Sales administrator Emma Fletcher, who has organised this years’ team, commented: “Blum in Austria is very well known for supporting local causes, and we aim to do the same here in Milton Keynes. We entered the festival primarily for a bit of fun, and to raise money for a very deserving cause.”
