Join the 100 club

Our aim is to raise £100,000 for our charity partners during the row. To make that happen we need to raise £82,000 to cover the cost of the challenge. We are inviting friends and family to become part of the 100 club by donating £100 to help us get to the start.

All donations contribute directly towards the cost of getting the crew to the start line. All money raised above this cost will be split between our charity partners.

If you are a small business looking to make a donation why not join our £250 club?
