A team of 11 hardy oarsmen braved a cold September's afternoon to represent the Swire group at a fundraising dragon boat race organised by the shipping industry in London last year. Representatives from Swire Bulk, James Finlay and John Swire & Sons Limited took to the water at the London Docklands Aquacentre against 23 other teams. The Swire team came in a respectable third after a few pre-match training sessions. They also raised just under £6,000 for the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London.
