Dragon Boat Race for OSCAR

Spinnaker will be donning life-jackets and oars as they take to the water in a Dragon Boat Race to fundraise for Great Ormond Street Hospital's OSCAR Campaign.

The campaign, named after Spinnaker Chairman Phil Parry's son Oscar who received life-saving care at Great Ormond Street, unites the shipping industry to raise funds towards groundbreaking research to help children with cancer, leukaemia and other immune diseases.

The event, which calls for teams to race in colourful dragon boats, is a great team-building exercise, and will also include fun extras such as the Directors' Challenge, where bosses pitch against one another in a kayak race.

As well as being jolly good fun, it's also good to know that the race will be raising money for such a good cause – and one very close to Spinnaker's heart.
