I do hope you have thoroughly enjoyed the Summer rowing season. We have had both fun and success this year and have helped over 30 new people to learn to row. It has been great to help set up the boathouse in the now nearly complete new home at COACH and the future looks exciting for us.
However, ‘nearly’ is the operative word. At this moment your club, ‘TRC’, needs you to help COACH raise money for the final push over the line to get the build 100% complete. As a club we are really lucky to be able to look forward relocating to our new boathouse and have a proper club base. As you know, our founder Ian has worked tirelessly, together with his fellow Trustees, to meet the incredible £950,000 build cost. How amazing it will be to not only store our boats safely and properly, but have toilets, changing rooms, space for training and especially a place to meet and socialise.
So we are setting all adult and junior members the challenge to try and raise through beg, borrow and stealing (maybe not that one!!)£100.00. Perhaps you know of family members who work for companies in the local area who would like to offer some money to sponsor the build. Or you could do a sponsored silence or run or row or cake sale, we really need our club to help the project get over the line. As a club we need to do our bit!
REMEMBER, if you are a UK taxpayer, any donation can be gift aided which raises another 25% further towards the final total. Just click the link below to make your final donation. Every little bit helps.
It would be brilliant to hear of your ideas of how to raise the money and we would love to report on these on our website to members.
Many thanks to donors and good luck all you fund raisers.
Boat Captain, Swanny
