initial goal!

We have just surpassed the intial £8,750 pounds. This means that our generous match donor will match your donations, ensuring we are able to purchase our first boat. This is an amazing achievement and we are incredibly grateful for everyone's support. Now, we have managed to reach the halfway point, the end is is almost in sight.

Recent training

All our athletes have been working hard over the last few weeks to prepare for Henley Royal Regatta, as well as Scot Champs this weekend. Please keep your eyes out for updates on our social media. Your support means the world to every single one of them, and helps us reach new heights!

Project24 Incredible News!

We cannot believe it! We are so excited to announce that we’ve received an incredible offer from a very generous donor…

When we raise £8,750, they will match this to guarantee that we are able to purchase our first boat and reach our half way point.

Please − help us to reach this initial target.

The first addition to our new fleet is almost in sight! Thank you to everyone for your support so far.

WE HAVE ADDED MONEY RAISED VIA PLEDGE500

The club has a long history of running campaigns in order to fund fleet expansions. We do not receive any funding from Scottish Rowing or British Rowing and yet compete with programmes that do; regularly beating them.

In order to sustain this high level of competition, we have previously asked for donations via schemes like Pledge500. All the money raised by these schemes went into our 'New Boat Fund' and were ear-marked for fleet expansion. Therefore it makes sense that these funds are added to Project 24. 

Project 24 is our most ambitious project to date, and so we need as much help as we can get. Your continued support is invaluable. Make sure you sign up as a helper and follow our platform in order to receive updates.

RECORD BREAKING BUCS WEEKEND!

I hope you all had a great bank holiday weekend, our club certainly did! We managed to secure 4 BUC's medals and smash our previous club record. This haul included 2 golds! If you want to read more about this weekend, please click the link here.

We are immensely proud of all our athletes as this is a testament to their hard work and dedication to the sport. It is also a reflection of the fantastic support we have received, and hopeful will continue to receive. 

Now more than ever do we need your help, as our director Jordan Stanley said in his recent interview here:

"we are performing at a very high level...in rowing 99% of your results come from the rowers in the boat but 1% unfortunately does come from the boat...currently where we are at...that 1% is what we are missing"

 

We ask you continue to share and update friends and family on not only the fantastic success of the club, but also on Project 24.

It has only been a week and we are already well on the way to reaching our goal

Over the weekend we experienced tremendous success, coming second in the Scottish Student Rowing Victor Ludorum at Scottish Rowing Spring Regatta. We were the highest performing non-funded university programme, so are tremendously proud of this achievement. Overall we took 7 gold medals, 1 silver and 6 bronze. You can read more here.

We believe this bodes well for the British University and Colleges Sports (BUCS) regatta at Holme Pierrepont this weekend. The event is the focus of much of our training and we hope you can join us. Last year the club had its most successful BUCS regatta ever, with 2 silver and 1 bronze medals. You can read more here.

Your support is vital in building upon this success, helping us grow and develop as a club, reaching the highest level of performance possible. We would ask that you continue to share Project 24 with friends and family. In that mind, we have interviewed Oscar and Henry about what this project means to them. You can watch that here

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the club through this platform, or our social media. You can also email myself at development_rowing@saints-sport.com. Thank you for all you have done so far.
