Devon Air Ambulance Trust Dragon Boat Racing

A couple of months ago I read that the Devon Air Ambulance were having a fund raising day, dragon boat racing on the river Exe.  When I found out that a team from the hospital where I work were entering I decided to pop down to watch a little.

Here are some of the hospital team.

The second heat is over and the RD&E are in second place by just four seconds.

Time for a motivational pep talk!

It was great fun to watch but I didn’t have to time to stay for the final results, I was heading east to see Scarlett and her mummy and daddy. Well done to everyone who entered and helped to raise funds that will keep our Air Ambulance flying.
