The OSCAR Dragon Boat Race is back

Fancy your team as the next Dragon Boat champions?

Back by popular demand, the Dragon Boat Race is returning this year for another exciting afternoon of competitive racing in aid of the OSCAR Campaign. It takes place on Friday 11 September, at the climax of London International Shipping Week.

We’re also moving to a bigger venue, The London Regatta Centre, in the heart of the Docklands. This fantastic venue offers left-to-right racing, providing the very best viewer experience. Again, the day will be filled with fun and entertainment for rowers and spectators alike.

Let's smash our target!

We're hoping to smash last year’s fundraising total, to raise £120,000 towards life-saving research into childhood cancers and immune diseases.

Last year’s grand finale saw a nail-biting finish with a tie for first place between Scorpio Group and RS Platou! If you’ve got what it takes to steal their crown, please contact Ellie Notley to register your team of 11.

There is a small registration fee to help cover costs and a suggested fundraising target which Ellie will provide further info on. Places are limited and sold out last year, so don’t miss out on a huge networking, team-building and fun fundraising day.

BBC documentaries

Extraordinary things happen at Great Ormond Street Hospital every single day. But what makes the hospital truly extraordinary are the patients and families that go through its doors. 

We’ll have a rare opportunity to see exactly how brave, determined and inspirational these patients and families are with a new three-part BBC documentary series, Great Ormond Street, which will begin airing on Tuesday 14th July at 9pm on BBC2. Difficult decisions are part of daily life at GOSH, and this documentary offers a rare insight into the challenges and risks for everyone involved in the healthcare of its patients.

The OSCAR campaign is raising vital funds to support families and children just like the ones featured in the series.  You may want to learn more about the stories behind the documentaries, so I am pleased to share the link to a dedicated page on the charity’s website: BBC GOSH Documentary
