Southampton University Boat Club have a novice boat that needs a name and we thought what better way to do it than to let you decide!
We've set up three crowdfunding pages with our three names:
1. Bobbing Along (a light hearted homage to the Bob Douglas)
2. Katrina Chia (boat club matriarch) - www.crowdfunder.co.uk/fund-senior-blades-katrina-chia
3. Juicy Lucy (the infamous "cocktail" from our beloved Jesters) - www.crowdfunder.co.uk/fund-senior-blades-juicy-lucy
We're fundraising for a new set of Senior Men's and Senior Women's blades, costing in total close to £5000. We're hoping to raise half of that - £2500 with the remaining coming from university funding and membership fees.
This year has been our biggest year as a club to date, with over 140 active members. We're hence in need of more equipment to cope with our growing membership numbers! New Senior Men and Women's blade will mean we have enough equipment for use in the club, as well as high quality equipment for our most competitive crews!
The page that fundraises the most will be our chosen name and will be announced at our Christmas Ball on the 6th of December!
