On the 2nd of July, colleagues from Ideal and Rolls Royce took part in the Dragon Boat Race hosted by Nottingham Hospitals Charity. Adam Ramsdale, Lucy bird, Paul Broughton and 11 people from Rolls Royce all took part in the race and decided that they wanted to help raise some money for NHC.

“Each team took part in a four-boat race until one was crowned the fastest.

Every team got two chances within their heat to be the fastest in that group. After that each team were placed in one final heat and race for a medal position”

The Dragon boat race raised just under £700. If you would like to donate, please click the link below:
