Cognisess Competes in Bath Dragon Boat Race, Surpassing Charity Fundraising Target

Taking part in the annual Bath Dragon Boat Race for the first time, Cognisess raised £1,000 alone for The Mountain Way charity.

On Sunday 9th September Cognisses raced against twelve other local business teams, set the fastest time of the day at 56.63 seconds and qualified for the semi-finals. The team thoroughly enjoyed competing and raising money for the designated charity The Mountain Way.

The Mountain Way is a charity whose aim is to help military veterans suffering from Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Their programme offers a ten-day excursion into the French Pyrenees mountain town of Bagnéres-de-Luchon on a one to one basis. By eliminating everyday distractions the veterans can start focusing on recovery, allowing them to regain a level of control of their combat- damaged lives.

At Cognisess we are passionate about helping others reach their potential, which is why we are excited to be supporting The Mountain Way. The money donated goes to a good cause – aiding veterans to rehabilitate their mind, rediscover their skills and boost their confidence.

Chris Butt, CEO of Cognisess, commented:

“We are so pleased to be supporting The Mountain Way and taking part in the Dragon Boat Race. The day has raised over £5,000 overall – and was fun and exciting for all the teams taking part. I’m proud that the Cognisess Sport crew has risen to the challenge – only losing narrowly by a second in the semi-finals. We look forward to 2019 and going one step further.”
