This is a message from the Womens Eights Head of the River Race Charity Partner, Breast Cancer Haven
Dear All Crews,
As you may know the Women's Eights Head of the River Race
will again be supporting Breast Cancer Haven by asking all teams taking part to
raise funds for the charity.
Last year teams raised over £10,000, and this year we are
hoping to smash that target. Many of the crews set up Just Giving websites at www.justgiving.com
and got sponsorship from friends and families. Some of you held pink parties,
raffles and competitions to raise your funds. There were many other fantastic
ideas, and this year we are hoping you will feel even more inspired in creating
ways to raise money.
You can download a fundraising pack by visiting www.breastcancerhaven.org.uk/events
and selecting the Women's Eights heading.
Alternatively email me your address and I will send a pack out, or even call me
on 020 7384 0024 to discuss your idea. The best way to collect your funds is
through Just Giving, which sends all donations directly to the charity, so set
up your crews fundraising website now at www.justgiving.com . Every team that raises
over £30 will be entered into a prize draw with the chance of winning the star
prize of the new design Rowperfect Rowing Simulator and a runner up prize of 8
Magik Oarlocks for your boat.
With 1 in 9 women being affected by breast cancer it is a
cause close to so many people's hearts, and every penny you raise will make a
difference to the lives of those affected. For more information on the charity
