Remember Party for the Podium? The charity fund raiser that gets you to row or be coached by Olympians during the Olympic year?  Well it’s still going and you can get involved again at the Docklands Games July 5-20th

Last year saw current and former GB Olympians headed up by Bill Lucas and Steve Rowbotham deliver a series of Rowing Coaching Experiences which generated a total of £12,800 for a variety of good causes. Their aim in 2014 is to double that amount through a series of Coaching Sessions, VIP Days and Corporate Tournaments planned throughout the year. Examples of last year’s fun and games can be found on www.facebook.com/Legacy300 .

Legacy 300 is a project which provides a universal platform for every good cause, whether it be charity or sports club to generate funds from the general public and directly support Team GB Athletes participating in the experiences. Each space has a minimum fundraising target with different amounts depending on the Individual and Corporate events being entered. On each occasion, you will be able to generate funds for the good cause by ‘Taking on Team GB’.

Rowperfect have spaces in the proposed calendar at Henley, Bristol and London to fundraise for the Steve Redgrave Fund and Sport Relief. The Steve Redgrave Fund aims to use the power of sport and sporting activity to bring about positive change in the lives of disadvantaged children, young people and their communities.

The Steve Redgrave Fund supports community groups, small charities and schools in areas of economic or social deprivation, predominately in the UK, who utilise sport and sporting activities – especially but not exclusively rowing – to promote physical and emotional well-being, the inclusion of people having difficulties in their lives, community cohesion, and education. This is your unique opportunity to support both the current and future medal winners whilst rowing in a boat with a GB Olympian.

THE PARTICIPATING ATHLETES:

The Olympians will be drawn from: Alan Campbell, Steve Rowbotham, Bill Lucas, Tom Solesbury, Sam Townsend, Natasha Page, Jess Eadie and Vicky Thornley.
