The club benefits greatly from hard work by members raising funds throughout the year. Every year at our regatta and at Christmas we hold a raffle and/or tombola, with prizes donated by members. Funds are also raised from the catering operation at the regatta, and from sales of tea, coffee and Peter’s famous bacon rolls at social rowing sessions. There’s also the “pound in the pirate” fund collected from race-training and mid-week crews.
The big success stories in fundraising, however, are the Bridge T-shirts and the monkey-fist knots. Click on the links to find out more.
