Hi and a massive thanks from all the Borlase rowers for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page! We are rowing on ergos for 24 hours non-stop to raise money for new boats and for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The club is entirely self-funded through donations, which cover our day to day running costs. However, we REALLY need extra funds to purchase new equipment. We have had some fantastic rowing successes this year despite our ageing fleet of boats (the average age of our boats is 17 years). This includes breaking a course record at the 2011 Henley Royal Regatta, 4 medals at the National Schools Regatta and 10 medals at the National Rowing Championships. We also had two students picked by GB Rowing to compete in the Coupe de la Jeunesse and the World Junior Rowing Championships, where both won silver.
New boats will enable more of us to get out on the water in safe, robust, modern boats, giving everyone a greater sense of pride in our equipment and appearance at events. 15% of all money we raise will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust so please, please, please give generously!
