BBL – Lottery Funding

We’re thrilled to announce we have received funding from Sport England to support our new rowers.

Last October Ellie Estchild (now secretary) spied that Sport England had some funding available to support the Olympic Legacy. Ellie set about putting a project together. We decided that we would ask for money to support our Get fit and row ladies, so created Get fit and row phase 2.

This project isn’t just about about the next intake, its also about supporting the rowers who joined via the Get fit and row course last year. We found out that we have been awarded the funding for our project. The money will fund a second launch (it will be a squeeze, but will be worth it in the long run), money for coaching and some coaching equipment.

The committee and I are thrilled to have this opportunity.
