Message from Robin, a Member of Itchen Imperial R. C.

As you may, or may not have heard, I am rowing the Boston Rowing Marathon on September 15th. As it's quite a challenge to row 50km, I thought I would try to raise a little money at the same time. My father always supported the RNLI and I joined about a year ago, and this is my chosen charity.

Would it be possible, as you know everybody in H & D, to send out an email to club secretaries offering them the chance to promote this cause to their members please? As we are all water users we appreciate the risks involved and always hope never to have to call upon the services of these volunteers but you never know! The link to the just Giving page is below.

Thank you in anticipation but don't worry if you don't think it's quite right.
