Story

Our challenge

Together, we are going to row the length of the River Avon within 6 weeks (starting on Monday 22 January). This means that we will row 83 miles in total, 41.5 miles each on a rowing machine at our community gym. This will test our perseverance and resilience. We know that some days will be hard, however, we know that it is for a good cause.

Our motivation

At the end of 2023, we entered the South Warwickshire Rowing Competition for our school, Henley in Arden High, with no experience of rowing. We are very proud of where we placed but would like to improve for the next competition. We are therefore fundraising so our school can buy two rowing machines and other PE equipment. Doing this will not only benefit the school's rowing teams, but will enable all students at Henley to discover new sports and moreover, enable the PE department to widen its curriculum.

Our thoughts

We believe that it is extremely important to keep fit whether at home or at school as it helps improve the mental and physical wellbeing of pupils. It gets students awake at the beginning and end of the day. We know that it is important to keep your mental wellbeing high because it improves learning skills and memory. It is also important that you broaden horizons for the future and by doing this we believe that we will help the school.

Thank you for supporting us.
