We are fundraising for some much needed boat house refurbishments for our ever expanding club!

by Cantabrigian Rowing Club in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 2nd October 2023 we'd raised £3,565 with 55 supporters in 42 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Who are we?

Cantabrigian Rowing Club (better known as “Cantabs”) is the largest and most successful rowing club in Cambridge. Continually growing, we welcome members of all ages and abilities, running regular Learn to Row courses for adults and juniors to introduce the community to the sport. The club is active in the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association, competing in local and national British Rowing events, as well as hosting annual racing events, attended by clubs across the region. Cantabs provides the equipment and coaching to take rowing to a competitive level whilst also supporting novice and intermediate rowers within a friendly and relaxed environment.

Why are we crowdfunding?

Cantabs are looking to fundraise for some much needed boathouse refurbishments as we are an ever growing club and slowly exceeding our boathouse! We need to upgrade the facilities in the boathouse, not limited to bathrooms (3 for 300+ people isn't the most ideal!) and expanding the boat house to allow us to fit more boats & equipment in for the growing fleet to keep up with the growing club. 

Community impact

Cantabs provides an inclusive and supportive atmosphere with strong links to the local community. Our membership is drawn from diverse walks of life throughout Cambridgeshire and we deliberately keep membership fees low to avoid them being a barrier to participation. This is possible through our large group of volunteers, consisting of all coaches (some holding British Rowing volunteering awards) and the majority of members. Paired with our strong relationships with several local schools, this means we can deliver multiple daily sessions throughout the week for members, schools, and even local companies, encouraging healthier living mixed with socialisation throughout the community.
