raised of £7,623 target by 245 supporters

    Weʼve raised £10,039 to Support Hereford NHS workers and Hereford Rowing Club. Join us to exercise from Hereford(UK) to Hereford(USA) by the 31st May 2020 - 7623km

    Funded on Wednesday, 26th August 2020

    Our Rowing club in Hereford is a community, recreational and sporting hub for our city with 1000's of Herefordians each year using our facility not just for rowing and kayaking, but also for weddings, parties, camping and other functions.

    We have closed our club during the Covid lockdown BUT we want to do something to support our city and bring Herefordians together in healthy way and to raise some funds for very worthwhile causes.

    We are collectively exercising our way from Hereford (UK) to Hereford (US), a distance of 7,623km Starting on the 30th April , and culminating on the 31st May - The day we should have been hosting our Hereford Regatta.

    Our Target is to raise at least £1 per km made.....a total of £7623.

    We've decided to raise funds for two causes:

    1. Hereford NHS workers. Many of our members work in the NHS, some have contracted Covid, but thankfully have fully recovered. For the rest of us in Hereford, we are just in awe of their bravery and service to all.

    2. Hereford Rowing Club. Most of you know we've had a tough time this year - We've had two of the biggest floods in Hereford history, causing £10'000s of damage and now Covid has reduced our income to zero. We want to be in a position to open the club rapidly at the end of the lockdown, and serve our community proudly.

    To be as inclusive as possible, we will record metres made from any physical activity - Indoor rowing, cycling, running, walking etc. Our Hereford rowing club members and families have committed to this challenge, but we welcome anyone else to join the cause (Exercising or fundraising) for the month of May.

    Contact CAPTAIN@HEREFORDRC.CO.UK and check our our progress on WWW.HEREFORDRC.CO.UK

    Stay Safe and Healthy folks.

      Thanks to everyone that has donated. The Page will be closed in a week, and I will be donating 50% to the NHS in Hereford to purchase a new ITU transfer chair. Another 50% will be transfered to the HRC Fund to support rowing in the community.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
