We raise funds from the sale of coffee, biscuits and cakes after the recreational outings and from money paid for the meals that we provide and prepare at the informal regattas we arrange, and when we host visiting groups etc. Even at 50p a cup we have raised £2500 in a year – that’s an awful lot of coffee!

Funds raised help the club to repair, replace and upgrade equipment.

As a result of our efforts in completing the 2014 Great Tyne Row we raised a total of £2364, which was divided between Grove House (Children’s charity), SSAFA (Sailors, Servicemen, Airforce and Families Association) and the British Heart Foundation.

By completing the same event in 2015 we raised £1000 which was split between Grove House, Clic Sargent (a children’s cancer charity) and Durham Trinity School.
