Harris & Harris Team “Moaty McBoatface” Paddle for Victory on Wells Moat!

A team from Harris & Harris have again taken part in the annual Wells Moat Boat Race on the August bank holiday Monday (29th). This is the fourth year running that we have entered a team in the event.  This year the team was made up of solicitors Joshua Eva (Team Captain) and Andy Hambleton, trainee Legal Executive Emma Wiltshire, trainee solicitor Maisie Kelly, Law Student / Office Clerk Ethan Mercer and local farmer Joe Stradling.

Our theme this year was inspired by the “Boaty McBoatface” story concerning the naming of the Antarctic research ship. An online poll had resulted in the name with most support “Boaty McBoatface” (in the end the ship was named RRS Sir David Attenborough). Hence the team were dressed as Polar Bears, Penguins and Seals. The team were very successful again, winning 5 out of 6 races and coming away with 2 trophies.

The team’s efforts were sponsored and funds raised by the event go in equal shares to support the Wells Lion Club and Wells Dementia Alliance.  Harris and Harris were also sponsors of some of the event categories.
