Boathouse Appeal

Construction of our wonderful new indoor training facility was completed in May 2016!Pavilion large (6)IMG_1894

 

The Pavilion doubles our indoor space so that all our current and future members can train throughout the year. At last we have disabled access, office, kitchen, storage and have reclaimed our Club social space.

We have worked really hard to secure funding from many different sources and have been amazingly successful. Our     thanks go out big time to Sport England, British Rowing, Stratford upon Avon Town Trust and the founders of the Club Trust. As well as this many Club members and friends have rallied to the cause with individual donations, fund raising events such as cake stalls, the brilliant Barn Dance and with sponsorship through the 24hour Ergothon.

So – if you feel you would like to join our team of supporters and get your name on our permanent Wall of Friends, please click on the MyDonate button and help us. The Pavilion is now a great place to meet and row and provides the opportunity for increased participation from all sections of the Stratford community.

Not every town has a Boat Club. This is a special Stratford-Upon-Avon facility for generations to come. Volunteers run the Club and all its fund raising efforts so 100% of every donation goes straight into the project. Please help!!
