Rowing the channel for charity!

October 2nd, 2016

rowing-ipOn Friday afternoon 25 boys from Monmouth House completed a sponsored team challenge on rowing machines at the Boathouse to raise money for our local Bridges Community Centre, specifically to assist them with their ‘befriending programme’.  This is an outreach programme to help people in Monmouthshire who might otherwise feel isolated.  It was a great team effort in which the boys rowed a total of 73,000 metres, equivalent to crossing from Dover to Calais and back.  All crew members received a certificate at the end from Head of House, Charlie, and will also be awarded with a much coveted ‘Mon House Charity Fundraiser’ trophy when they bring in their sponsorship money.  They hope to raise in excess of £500.
