Weʼve raised £390 to refurbish Abingdon Rowing Clubs changing facilities and main entrance to prevent flooding and update our 1958 facilities
- Abingdon, United Kingdom
- Funded on Wednesday, 29th March 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
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.

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!!!

About the fundraiser
Abingdon, United Kingdom
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.
