Story

One May evening we each received a call from a good friend, Craig Elwell, not so much asking us as telling us that we were going to row the English Channel…. "Sounds like fun," we all thought and, after months of gruelling training, on the 13th October two boats of seven strapping lads, in the peak of fitness will take to the water. After a challenging 22 miles requiring all our strength and stamina, the sight of the French coast will never be more welcome. Friendship brought us together and united us in the challenge to raise funds for the AHOY charity.

 

Not only is our challenge a marathon row across the Channel to shake hands with our French neighbours, but also an endeavour to raise £12,000 per boat. Please check our "justgiving" pages to contribute to the AHOY cause. Every penny counts, so please contribute whatever you can.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

 

 

So please dig deep and donate now.

The AHOY Centre

The AHOY Centre

Charity Registration No. 1084122

At AHOY we use the medium of sailing to break down many of the barriers and divides that exist within today's society, to bring together people from different walks of life and backgrounds.<p> Through the activities and courses at AHOY, we teach and train people not only how to sail or row, but also about helping others, so that they can then go on to teach and help others. <p> Our primary objective is working with disadvantaged youth and people with disabilities, however, the Centre caters for all - young, disabled and retired alike. It offers them all the experience, opportunities and new horizons gained through water-based activities. <p>
