Fundraising Success: New Quad

In May 2016 we started another ambitious fundraising project to raise funds to buy a new lightweight quad. This altered slightly during the course of the project when we decided to upgrade to the new interchangeable Wintech. This meant we would get a boat that could be used both coxed and coxless.

A huge boost to this project came from a £10000 grant from Sport England. Long standing members and supporters of the club, Mr and Mrs Davey helped us along with a generous £1000 donation whilst Dawn and Monty Peacock (Grandparents of 3 of our Juniors) held many car boot sales to raise £1150. We are also grateful to Grafham Lions, Luminus and Waitrose for further donations.

‘Robert Davey II’ was officially launched on 4th Feb 2017.
