Ahoy Captain!

Twin&Earth had the pleasure of taking part in the Meridian Pool Challenge annual boat race along the Thames in Central London. We participated as part of the Investec Asset Management - Project Newlands team (55 Gresham Street). The team included JAC Group, Rider Levett Bucknall, MiX, HLW, Hoare Lea and Twin&Earth. Guess what……the team finished in 1st place! Thanks to JAC Group for organising the boat at this fantastic event that raised over £24,000 for the AHOY Charity which is a fantastic cause.

Dragon Boat Racing?!

Last week Twin&Earth attended Grosvenor’s annual Dragon Boat Regatta at the Oakley Resort Hotel in Windsor. The event was hosted in aide of The Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre and successfully raised £41,000 for the charity.

Despite missing out on the semi-finals by 0.01 seconds, it was a brilliant day of team bonding, with the sun shining and a fantastic setting.
