Ryde Rowing Club. Fundraiser for Cancer Research UK.

British Rowing has joined forces with Cancer Research UK for the “Great Row” and are encouraging thousands of rowers across the nation to take on an indoor rowing challenge.

Ryde Rowing Club, in partnership with Churchers Solicitors of Union Street, Ryde, joined forces with British Rowing and Cancer Research UK on Saturday (26th March 2017) to take part in the “Great Row” to raise funds for the charity and the Club.

The Clubs Coastal Ladies Junior Squad, the recent winners of the Senior Team Award at the IW Sports Foundation Sports Achievement Awards, supported by the Men’s Coastal Junior Squad set-up shop in Churchers Union Street Office to complete a marathon on indoor rowing machines – a target they comfortably exceeded during the day.

The Club and Churchers also organized a cake sale and raffle and there was face painting and balloon modelling available and the club was able to show off its replacement Minibus, purchased in parts with funds raised at a similar event last year.

During the day more than four hundred pounds was raised which coupled with the on-line appeal is expected to eventually raise more than seven hundred pounds.
