Pole Star & friends fundraising for the 2015 OSCAR Dragon Boat Race

London International Shipping Week 2015 is playing host to this years OSCAR Dragon Boat Race at the London Regatta Centre in the heart of the Docklands on Friday 11th September.

The event will unite companies from across the shipping industry to raise funds for life-saving research into childhood cancers and immune diseases. The OSCAR campaign is hoping to smash last year’s fundraising total and raise £120,000 for this fantastic cause.

Companies from all areas of our complex and exciting industry (from shipowners to suppliers, brokers and operators) will be coming together to compete in a dragon boat race to raise money for this excellent cause. Last year, the finals were fought between teams from Scorpio Group and RS Platou. This year, we hope to be victorious - both on the water, and by reaching our goal to raise GBP £5,000 for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.

We have pledged to raise £5,000 for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and we are doing so with the help of our staff, suppliers and distribution partners.
