We provide boating for less able people to help them fulfill their potential


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

This has to be the hardest physical challenge we have taken on yet. 

No sleep for 42 hours, rowing through 2 nights, 167 miles, the dangers of the raging tide on the Tideway through London - all with middle aged bodies!

This has only ever been attempted by a mad few. Will we succeed? 

We are raising money for Accessible Boating Thames - a charity that helps get adults and children with disability and special needs on to the water in adapted boats.

Please give generously - all money will go directly to the charity to pay for adults and children with disabilities and special needs to get on the water. We are raising money in memory of Pat Davis MBE , joint founder of Rivertime, (sister charity to ABT).

Thanks for your support!
