Ahoy Centre Fundraisers to Cross the Channel

On the 11th August, seven volunteers are rowing from Dover to Calais (about 22 miles) to raise funds for The AHOY Centre on the River Thames in Deptford. You can make donations to one of the rowers, Craig Robinson, here:

Despite living so near to the River Thames, many young people locally barely have a sense of it and very few get the opportunity to be out on it in a boat.  The AHOY Centre runs sailing, rowing and powerboating courses for local kids most of whom have never been out on the water before. My daughter spent some time there via her school and had a great time.
