Story

At the beginning of 2007 the three of us decided to row from London to Oxford in a Victorian Camping Skiff. On the week we were meant to do it the Environment Agency had a severe weather warning in force and banned all boats, including powered vessels, from navigating the Thames. Lock Keepers warned us that to carry on would be suicide. We decided to postpone till 24th May 2008...

Last year we raised £805 for the same charity which has already been donates - this year we hope to raise a similar sum again making the total target £1,500... your help is appreciated... Here's a reminder of what we're going to do...

On the 24th May 2008 the three of us will be launching a Victorian Camping Skiff from Walton on Thames and rowing the near 100 miles to Oxford. Our aim is to get to Oxford on Saturday 31st May.

We have very limited rowing experience and those of you that know us would say that we're an unlikly bunch of oarsman! We're taking to the event in the spirit of Jerome K Jerome though and as such will no doubt enjoy the experience come rain or shine.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor us: The Manic Depression Fellowship will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor us now!
