About Us

Here at Marlow Rowing Club we are launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise donations for our Marlow RowAbility project to provide easier and safer access to the water for everybody, but our para and adaptive rowing squads in particular. 

Since devastating fires back in 2011, Marlow Rowing Club rose from the ashes to maintain its status as one of the UK’s leading clubs for Adaptive Rowing Squads, training top Rowing Paralympian talent and hopefuls alike, and inspiring those with disability and mobility issues to follow their rowing trails.

Greats such as Sir Steve Redgrave and Gold Medal Paralympian Naomi Riches MBE all train there. While Marlow Rowing Club has a new indoor state-of-the-art fully accessible facility, sadly funds raised couldn’t stretch to pay for easier and safer water access or an under-cover boat storage area.

Our Marlow RowAbility project will upgrade part of the existing site to become a state-of-the-art, easy to use facility for the storage of boats and access to the river for the club’s para and adaptive rowing squads.

Facilities will also enable older and less mobile members to continue to be able to use their single sculling boats. And with no steps or gaps to navigate our upgraded rafts will provide easier and safer access to the water for ALL users of our Marlow Watersports Hub.

The project has been planned and costed as follows:

Land Side:

Site preparation, demolition and build
Tree works
Professional and planning fees
Sub-total £140,000

Water Side:

Re-piling, new timbers and launch moorings
2 x “Poralu” pontoons
Sub-total £60,000

TOTAL COST = £200,000

The club aims to complete all the works required within two years. To boost the start of fundraising, they are already fortunate to have been left a legacy of £38,000. Our gala dinner to launch the fundraising campaign and application for grants from various sport foundations and bodies mean that we are seeking to raise £100,000 through donations to help make this inspirational project a reality. So we need your help to make it happen!

Donations can be from just £10, and all contributions will be gratefully received. The committee has also designed a “Patron” reward scheme to say a special thank you for larger donations:

A Bronze Donation of £800 plus Gift Aid = £1,000

- Your name on the Patron’s board integrated into new facility structure
- An exclusive Patron’s lapel pin designed by Naomi Riches
- An invitation to the opening ceremony

A Silver Donation of £4,000 plus Gift Aid = £5,000

- Your name on the Patron’s board integrated into new facility structure
- An exclusive Patron’s lapel pin designed by Naomi Riches
- A VIP invitation to the opening ceremony
- A silver name star in entrance area floor

Gold Donation of £8,000 plus Gift Aid = £10,000

- Your name on the Patron’s board integrated into new facility structure
- An exclusive Patron’s lapel pin designed by Naomi Riches
- A VIP Invitation to the opening ceremony
- An invitation to an exclusive VIP event for Patrons
- A “Hollywood” style GOLD name star in entrance area floor

St Mark's School Bath - love learning!

    #remotelearning Urgent Chromebook Appeal   Here at St Mark’s in Larkhall, Bath we are launching a Regular Giving campaign to raise funds to improve the environment and facilities that our wonderful school offers. In support of our school vision: ‘St Mark’s vision is to promote self-worth that inspires our students to live well, achieve their goals and be a force for good in their school and in the world.’ Love Learning – Love Life Now our more generic appeal has become more urgent as it is necessary to provide the tools for home learning for the majority of our students. To bridge the digital divide, which exists in most school cohorts, we are launching this appeal to purchase as many £200 Chromebooks as we can, by the end of January. This is to provide the much needed resource for ALL our students to be able to access the on-line lessons they need to thrive in school. So why crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is a great way to hit a fundraising target through a group of people all coming together to put funds in to the same pot and encouraging others to do the same. The larger the group or ‘crowd’ formed, the more money we raise so the key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out there via all of our networks. Please help us to make this possible by donating as much as you can and please pass on the appeal details on your own social media network to family, friends and your other contacts to help spread our message. This is really important within our local community. Every single donation helps. And every single share helps too! To set up a regular donation, please click on the DONATE button. You can choose how much to donate each month, and we could also claim Gift Aid on your donation, boosting each one by 25%. Of course, Regular Giving may not suit everyone, so if you prefer, you can choose to make a one-off donation to help fund our wish list of projects. Thank you for your support! It will really make a difference to the quality of home learning.
