We set out to row 500 miles in 24 hours and raise as much money as we could. A target of £250 was set on Just Giving. We SMASHED both.
622 miles later the organising team brought the 5 rowing machines in: Ian W, Lisa TH, Sarah M, Richard G, Jerry G with Sally TH orchestrating the final moments.
We have raised over £1284 and growing with 40 different rowers. We had all ages, 14 years to 67 years old with some rowing in total for nearly 8 hours. The Celtics faced strong winds and had to circumnavigate Ballast Island numerous times to put the miles in rather than face the dangerous waters out to sea.
The night owls dug deep and the food supplies donated certainly kept energy levels up. Ollie makes the best Choc Chip Buns ever.
Thanks to everyone, there were so many heroes, for such an epic event.
