Ryde R. C. Presentation to IW Youth Trust.

Sponsors, supporters and helpers of Ryde Rowing Club were entertained at an informal gathering at their Clubhouse on Friday evening (26th January) to thank them for their support during the last year.  

The newly elected Club Captain Graham Reeve welcomed and thanked all those in attendance and offered a special thanks to the Clubs main sponsors Wightlink and to the main Regatta Sponosr TLM Laser. A short presentation on the clubs activities and successes in 2017 - which included winning the South Coast Championships and the Hants & Dorset ARA Championships in the Ladies Coastal Junior Fours and a share in the Hants and Dorset ARA Ladies Novice Sculls Championship was then given. This was followed by a presentation to Felicity Radak, a Fundraiser with the Isle of Wight Youth Trust, who - working in conjunction with Wightlink - were the Clubs nominated charity, once again in 2017. 

Following various fund raising activities -  the club was able to hand over another cheque for £400 to the Isle of Wight Youth Trust. The IW Youth Trust are a charitable independent and professional organisation offering counselling, advice, information and support services to young people under 25 on the Isle of Wight and, in some cases, their parents or carers and the Club were delighted to be able to support them once again.
