Welcome to Wigan Water Dragons

Wigan Water Dragons are a group of Breast Cancer Survivors who meet weekly to enjoy the exercise of paddling the dragon boat. The exercise programme has been set up after research into the benefits of paddling to help reduce the effects of Lymphedema and it also gives an improvement in general physical and mental health. The group is affiliated to Paddlers for Life UK, a UK charity based at Windermere, which now has groups as far apart as Edinburgh in the north and Bournemouth in the south, along with Dumfries and Galloway in the west, with new groups being set up all over the UK.
