On Saturday 21st September, The Oar Kids took to the high seas to compete in the Condor Ferries' Dragon Boat Festival in aid of Jersey Hospice Care.  The Oar Kids - a motley crew of ORCHID team members, their partners and some of our brilliant clients - were virgin Dragon Boaters bursting with energy, passion and a sense of humour.

It was a fantastic day out for participants and spectators and a big thanks to our friends and family who came and cheered us on.  It's was all for a brilliant cause - Jersey Hospice Care - with thousands of pounds being raised by the 57 competing teams.  We were the noisy colourful ones who were laughing and almost going round in circles!  However, somehow, we managed to get our act together and wangle our way into the final. We didn't win, but we had one of the best team days EVER.  Huge thanks to all the organisers for giving us a day to remember.
