Paddington teams will take to the water at Paddington Basin for the milestone annual Dragon Boat race on Thursday 25 July. This year teams will fundraise for COSMIC, Children of St Mary's Intensive Care. Last year’s race raised over £16,000 for COSMIC and this year we hope to raise even more.
Near the stunning Floating Pocket Park, teams of eleven (ten paddlers and one drummer) will race their own Dragon Boat the length of the Merchant Square canal with the aim of being first past the finishing line and taking home the coveted Dragon Boat cup.
COSMIC (Children of St. Mary’s Intensive Care) supports the Children’s Intensive Care Unit at St. Mary’s Hospital overlooking Paddington Basin, by helping patients and their families and enabling the dedicated team to treat hundreds of critically ill children from all over London each year
