A fantastic day in Belfast racing against all 10 businesses within the W& R Barrnett group, including teams from the Logson Group – Logson, Boxshop, Cardboard Box Company, Jardin Corrugated Cases, and Boxes and Packaging.

Board24 and Cases24 team raised a total of £4,955 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Sadly, their team called “the win-oars”, didn’t make it to the final despite the promising name choice. Nonetheless, the whole team rowed well and raised a substantial amount for GOSH charity.

Representing Team ‘Win-oars’ were Dominic Drew, Managing Director; Chloe Finlayson, Marketing Coordinator; Mick Walsh, Site Safety Officer; Tyler Bridges, Production Operative;  Dave Winstanley, Production Operative; Peter Fenwick, Continuous Improvement & Health and Safety Manager; Anthony Moran, Reel Stores Operative; Robert Woods, Team Leader Corrugator 1; Alex Morris, Managing Director – Cases24; Kelvin Egan, Conversion Team Leader; Paul Jarram, Casemaker 3 Lead Operator and Gordon King, Health and Safety Officer.

Chloe Finlayson, the team caption commented, “what an incredible event to be involved in, and our thanks goes out to W & R Barnett for hosting us in Belfast. I especially enjoyed being back on home territory – it was lovely to have my colleges make an effort to travel from England and Scotland. Additionally, I want to congratulate the Logson Group, The Cardboard Box Company Ltd, and Jardin Corrugated Cases who came second, and John Thompson and Son, who were champions of the dragon boat race. The combined total raised for all charities was £206,000 – I can’t help but feel proud to have played a small part.”
