Raising funds to buy the wooden Gig "Amy Shaw"

by cwstgreenwood in Portreath

Project aim We are a local sports club set in the beautiful village of Portreath on the north coast of Cornwall Our aim is to enable as many local people from our community to taste and experience what its like to Row a Cornish Gig 

About the project We are aiming to raise 9K to be able to secure the wooden Gig Amy Shaw for the club. Its a beautiful traditional wooden cornish Gig named after a young lasy who sadly passed away just over a year ago. 

We have a growing membership and are reaching out within the local community to attract some young people for our Junior team. 

We are wanting to raise the funds for the club to own its own boat, this is a requirement of the CPGA our governing body, it also allows the members more flexibility and say in how we move forward as a club.
