New boathouse project

We want to make rowing available to more people in Sheffield, and particularly in the community in S6, but our facilities are at capacity: we have one toilet between 250 rowers, no electric light, and our existing boathouse is an asbestos clad shed built in 1968. We have planning permission from Peak Park for a new boathouse and water access, but right now funding for grass roots sport is hard to come by. Therefore we are appealing directly to people who love rowing and who want to see more healthy recreation in our city.

About the charity

We promote healthy recreation in Sheffield through the sport of rowing. Based on Damflask Reservoir in the Loxley Valley, we are home to 250 rowers. We have active men's, women's, juniors', veterans', and recreational squads. We host the annual Boat Race between the city's universities.
