Colleagues from across Merseyside made a splash for charity after finishing third in a Dragon Boat Race competition.

A total of 16 staff from the Merseyside Community Rehabilitation Company (M CRC) raised more than £650 for the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Foundation.

The race took place at the Liverpool Watersports Centre, Albert Dock, last weekend, and the probation boat finished a credible third.

ADHD is a neuro-developmental condition which makes – among other things – school-based learning difficult. Unsupported, it can result in social and educational exclusion.

Karen Rooney, M CRC Community Director, said: “We are delighted to have finished third, and moreover we are delighted to be raising cash and awareness for the ADHD Foundation.

“The foundation’s work is very close to my heart because my son has autism and ADHD, and other staff members also support family members with the conditions. The foundation offers invaluable support to people with the condition, and their families.

“It is also true that probation works with a number of service users with the condition, and so raising awareness about it is particularly important in our line of work.”
