Coalporters Northam Bridge Archway Development

by Coalporters Rowing Club in Southampton, England, United Kingdom

We did it
On 6th December 2018 we successfully raised £15,511 with 211 supporters in 28 days

We need somewhere to store our boats. The Council are willing to let us use an arch in the nearby bridge, but we must fund all construction.

A MASSIVE thank-you from Nick ,the Club and me !!! £15,511 is an amazing total and show's what we can do together! Those last donations were appreciated too :) I get the impression money will start leaving accounts now, if it hasn't already - so make sure you're in a good place for that :) Coalies forever!!!

Thanks, Al, that means a lot. Taking a 40% hit is pretty tough, so we appreciate the gesture even more. With any luck, the Sport England fund matching might effectively right that loss !! Plus you're in the 1% club forever :)

This whole thing has been really inspiring for Nick, me and hopefully you guys to see - the club members, past and present, as well as family and friends, stepping forward and making this happen. WELL DONE EVERYONE!!!!

WE'VE DONE IT!! £15,201...........YES!!!! A great finish last night, just around the time of 'last orders'. Coincidence ??? - probably not :) Anyway, to every person who has donated over the last 3 and a half weeks, a massive thank-you again!! Each one of you can rightly be proud of helping the club when it really mattered and contributing to some part - a blade rack, a boat rack, a door - that you'll see in the finished arch. C-O-A-L-I-E-S !!! PS Gary's final donation was for Ernie Flood

Brilliant stuff today- we've practically smashed the last £1,000 in one day!! Thank-you everyone, great to see those familiar names. Bob- yes, you can still be a vice-president!!!

Coalporters Rowing Club 30th November 2018

Thank-you to everyone who has donated really is appreciated....and has kept us moving towards the next milestone: £14,000!! We're just through £13,900 - £100 more to move this through the full thousand and start taking it home !! With 5 days to go, £200 a day will do it... dig deep, you legends, the finish is in sight!! :) Thanks again Nick, Dave & the Club
