raised of £1,000 target by 58 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,670 to support the mental health charity MIND, AND raise funds for our community rowing club Team Keane Sculling School

    Funded on Sunday, 13th October 2019

    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.


    Why would 8 women, in their prime, row 21 miles in an 8+ across Loch Ness, the deepest in Scotland, with recent reports that 'Nessy' actually exists ??

    The reason why …. Passionate and addicted to rowing, 8 rowing chums from Team Keane and Putney Town Rowing fuelled by their absolute belief in the fact that this sport is a wonderful medium for mental well-being, fitness, self-confidence, camaraderie and self-discipline, hatched a plan to enter the annual 'Monster the Loch' event and raise funds for two worthy charities.

    50% of all money raised will go to the mental well-being charity MIND.

    The other 50% of funds raised will go towards Team Keane Rowing Club's charity programme; sponsoring places on rowing courses for less privileged juniors, thereby enabling them to access to what has traditionally been seen as an elite sport. We see rowing's transformative powers as a possible key to less advantaged young people finding confidence, discipline, self-motivation and resilience.

      We monstered the loch !! As you can see it was a misty and calm start, bag pipes were playing, the atmosphere very friendly. The conditions became choppy in the 2nd half the water pumps saved us as water sloshed over the sides. in 2 hours 37 mintes we reached the welcoming sight of the Pub on the north shore. With some elite competition inc GB men’s 8, our boat came 6th out of over 50 ‘craft’ ... fine boats, kayaks, coastal boats, 2 pedalo, 1 paddle boarder. Here is a film promoting the GB men's 8+ row
