Most rowers and coaches enjoy watching good racing. But often, you can’t get to the regatta in person – so here’s an opportunity to raise some money for your club and have fun watching excellent racing in the process:
We got the idea from Marlow Rowing Club who describe hosting an Olympic Breakfast – described here at 26 minutes through the radio show.
Things to think about before you start
- How much money do you want to raise and for what purpose?
- Plan your venue – you could just ask a local cafe, pub or restaurant to host it for you and share the profits. Many venues are happy to open up if they know they’ll get customers.
- Organise how you will tell your members and their friends about the event
- Follow-up after each one telling them again how it went and what you raised
Enjoy the Olympic Rowing
