We're still collecting donations

On the 30th May 2022 we'd raised £1,585 with 28 supporters in 69 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

We are a team of colleagues from Vodafone who have formed a 4-man crew to compete in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2023. We share a passion for adventure and what more of an adventure than to take on “The World’s Toughest Row”? We expect to be pushed beyond our mental and physical limits. 

As well as being an immense physical and mental challenge rowing across the Atlantic is a financial challenge. We are half way to the £140,000 needed to just get to the start line.This is where we need your help, all funds raised here will go towards the costs to get us to the start line fully prepared and equiped. Excess funding after costs will go to Tusk and Blue Marine Foundation.

The Race

The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is an extreme endurance rowing race and is the premier event in ocean rowing. Competitors from across the globe test themselves against the might of the Atlantic Ocean. The Challenge will take us 3,000 miles, unsupported, from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to English Harbour in Antigua and Barbuda. A once in a lifetime experience.

The Charities

We are using the Challenge to highlight the urgent need to protect our planet’s wildlife and habitats, raising funds for Tusk and Blue Marine Foundation. You can help us do that by sponsoring us; anything you can give is helping to make a difference and hugely appreciated.

Thank you,

Aaron, Andy, Chris and David

Rewards

This project offered rewards

£20 or more

Feed a crew member for a day

The crew will be burning around 6,000 calories a day whilst rowing – which means they will be eating ALOT. They will be carrying 60 days worth of rehydrated meals per person which costs £20 per person per day. Please sponsor them to keep their energy levels up for this mammoth challenge. Your reward will be knowing that your donation is fuelling the crew and getting them to the finish line.

£50 or more

Solar Power

Our boat (Doris) needs 100 solar panels to power essential equipment for navigation, communication and water supplies. Sponsoring a panel will help keep the crew safe and enable them to contact home and safety teams. You will receive a shoutout on our social media platforms.
