Story

"When you are told that your child will be dead by lunchtime, life naturally seems devoid of hope.  Nine years since that happened to us, Oscar has finished his GCSEs and will turn 17 on 14th July 2016."

As Oscar's Dad I am enormously proud not only of him but of everyone in shipping who has helped us raised over £1.3m to support life-saving research which is helping to beat childhood cancers andimmune diseases. 

Please help us reach our £1.5m target by sponsoringSpinnaker's Dragon Boat team which is racing on 16th September in London

Thank you!
