Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit SEHBC's JustGiving page.

THE CREW & THE CAUSE: 

The Crew: 

Graham Baird - If he isn't at the boathouse, then he will be in the gym. Drinks a lot of champagne, Pimms and coca-cola, but NEVER at the same time. President of SEHBC (Twice). 

Megan Carter - Always appears to be at the center of unfortunately timed accidents and hence prone to random injuries. Likes to pretend that pain doesn't exist. Women's Captain 2014/2015.  

Harry Clifford - Northerner. The least experienced member of the crew, but what he lacks in technique he makes up for with monstrous power. Interesting fact: He lives with Graham. 

Rachel Davies - Has terrifying dinosaur voice if you don't do what she wants. Repeatedly seen surrounded by piles of paper. Has been known to never miss an episode of 'Casualty'. 

Charlotte Dormon - Always a positive, sparkling force in the center of the boat but couldn't keep her eyes in it if her life depended on it. In Summer Eights training 2014, her quads ripped open her new JL unisuit.

Stef Gorman - Blonde. Fabulous. Classicist. Bear in disguise. It is rumoured that she has the tightest lycra of all the crew and looks incredible in it... 

Tom Hole - Secret Behemoth. Eternal student who frequently uses the boathouse as his second home. Literally. 

Joe Mackay - Recovering lightweight, new men's Captain and Artist. When he's not stripping off for his art or toning his 'Danger Abs' , he loves nothing better than getting down to the boathouse, banging out his 'tunes' and firing up the BBQ. 

Jeanne Marie Ryan - Former Hildabeast who realised that she belonged with teddies. Fancies herself as a bit of a linguist outside the boat. 

Emily Saddler - Deer Stalker and former powerhouse. Used to go to Durham but managed to turn it around. Lets children watch movies all day in her classroom and calls it 'teaching'. 

David Severson - AKA Threeverson. The American of the crew. When not doing his DPhil or fulfilling his MCR Presidential duties, he can be found on the river or pounding the pavements. 

George Spill - AKA Spillage or Georgie. University Mens Ski Captain. As smooth with the older ladies as he is in the stroke seat. George continues to sport the worst haircut on the river despite the advice of all his teammates AND threats from his coach to cut both him and his hair from the boat. 

Sam Wratten - AKA Cockney Sam. A bit of a geezer, studying PPE and views himself as a future Gordon Gekko. Sam possesses the gangliest of limbs known to man, which he uses to great effect both in the boat and on the dance floor at Camera. 


The Cause: 

Restore is a charity based in Oxfordshire which supports people who have mental health issues and promotes education to recognise symptoms of potential illnesses. They offer innovative rehabilitation programmes and employment and training support for people with mental health problems. 

In a society where mental illness can be dismissed because it doesn't show any exterior ailments or physical compromises, many people end up being prescribed pills to save money when other forms of treatment such as cognitive behavioural therapies and counselling are far more relevant and beneficial to patients. Restore is a charity that stands up and speaks out against mental health taboos whilst simultaneously offering alternative methods of support for mental health issues. 

For more information about Restore, see their website:  http://www.restore.org.uk/
