Trentham Boat Club Juniors are nearly halfway towards raising £6,500 towards the cost of a second-hand ‘Learn to Row’ coxed quad boat. The Rowing Foundation have offered a grant of £3,000 towards the purchase. However, the Junior section need to raise another £3,500 to make this possible and we really hope with your support we can reach this target within the next 8 weeks and take this project forward (Rowing Foundation grant expires 30th November 2019).
Trentham Boat Club is a small non-profit rowing club based at the Trentham Estate. We serve the surrounding area of North Staffordshire, including Stoke on Trent, an area of higher than average deprivation, poor levels of health, lower than average participation in sports and low aspiration (Profile Report Sport England). The mission of the club through the ‘Learn to Row’ programme is to ensure youngsters in the community have long term opportunities to be engaged in sport and thus enable them to improve their chances of achieving a healthy and active independent lifestyle.
Please support our vibrant and keen junior team, run by a brilliant and inspiring coaches, which is by will and determination competing at the highest levels and give other local children the opportunity to become involved and progress.
Hopefully you’ve spotted us on social media, radio or via the press!
