Dragons roar!

Bastows/News/News/Charity/Dragons roar!

On Friday 1st June we took part in the Grosvenor Estate’s annual charity dragon boat regatta in support of their chosen charity, the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre.

Following a successful third place in 2017, Bastows once again teamed up with fellow contractors PJ Harte, Gaysha and SW Bruce to bring the Four Dragons team back to the water. We were resplendent in our fabulous team shirts designed by final year design student Lucy Dobson, who we chose as part of our ongoing support for young artists and crafters. Lucy took inspiration from each Company’s logo to create four magnificent beasts to represent us on the day.

The weather was kind, the racing was as thrilling as ever and the team spirit was strong. It was a wonderful day, doing something many might otherwise never get the opportunity to try.

The results- we are delighted that we placed a very respectable third of 31 teams again, bringing home the bronze medals and helping raise over £40,000 for a great cause.

Our thanks go to our team mates (you are all superstars!) Also huge thanks to the team at TAG Events, the Oakley Court at Windsor for their hospitality, and most of all to the organisers at Grosvenor Estate.

The Four Dragons may well roar again in 2019!
