Health and wellbeing

Funding level: £1,001 to £5,000


This project is to support community coastal rowing in our area. Costal rowing is healthy teaches skills and promotes community spirit.
We are an ageing organisation but the introduction of a skiff to our community is attracting interest from all age groups and abilities. Everyone who has the use of their arms can row in a boat. It's for virtually all ages, gender and ability. We need help with safety equipment and launching equipment and training for our rowers. We know that there are lots of people in our community who are keen to join us to take part in this healthy and fun activity, to make new friends and work as a team. We hope to have our boat ready very soon but need support for extra oars and all the safety equipment necessary for safety at sea. This is a challenging project for our club but we are committed to seeing it through
