Bristol Dragon Boat Race – Gromberry’s Gang of Glorious Germs!

The One Scientific team enjoyed a sunny day in the harbourside racing the other charity boats and teaching the young spectators about bacteria and germs. Our stand had various coloured jelly’s in petri dishes to the children added coloured icing too to reproduce images of real bacteria on agar. After this, they got to eat their artwork!

The ‘Gromberry’s Gang of Glorious Germs’ got off to a slow start and after our first race we sat a mere 35th place of 36 boats! After a strong prep talk and followed by a few drinks and burgers, the wind was in our sail and we finished a proud 28th of 36 boats. But it was never about the winning, it was all about raising money for the fabulous Grand Appeal that support Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Many thanks to all our friends and suppliers that generously donated. Also a great big thank you to all our staff that took part and helped out on the day! We had a fantastic time and hope to do even better next year.
