What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


Abingdon Rowing Club is a sociable and active club that caters for members form 14 to 70+

We cater for social, developing and competitive crews.

Founded in 1958 our main building and changing facilities have changed very little since then. They are in critical need of refurbishment to create dry, warm and safe changing spaces for all of our members. The current building is prone to flooding in heavy rain due to rainwater run off and as a result our changing facilities are often damp, moldy and requiring yet another clear out of mud and debris.

We're raising funds to enable us to update the building protecting it from further damage, reconfigure our changing rooms to provide bigger, brighter, warmer and safer spaces for our members, and bring them a little more up to date to cater for a growing club.

    What are we really fundraising for? Not just paint and tiles - we're looking to re-jig, rejuvenate and make more of our limited space .

    Every rowing club has need of funding but few can claim to be contributing to the reduction in local flooding. Support this worthy cause immediately!!!

As a member of Abingdon rowing club for 4 years I've really got to know what an open, friendly and accommodating place it is. No 'racing crews only' or high fees here - Abingdon is about encouraging people to come and enjoy a sport at the level they feel comfortable at.
