THE hunt is on for business teams to battle it out in a colourful dragon boat festival in Oulton Broad in May.

The East Anglian Dragon Boat Festival will be held on May 10 at Nicholas Everitt Park and the organisers are looking for corporate teams who are willing to use their technique and timing to take part in the races.

Last year's event raised more than �30,000 for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) and organisers are hoping to make even more this year.

Many local companies, including Sizewell A, Marriott Sprowston Manor, Hoseasons and NHS Yarmouth and Waveney, have already entered teams for the event, but there are still places available for crews of between nine and 11 people.
