Thank you for taking the time to visit my page.
I am trying to raise a minimum of £5000.00 for the NOMAN IS AN ISLAND: Race to end HPV charity. As part of the deal to raise this money I have agreed to row the 200 miles from Ibiza to Barcelona in July 2019. I will be part of a team of 4 other rowers rowing against against other similar crews.
Noman is an Island is a registered charity which works to prevent cancer - please visit their site www.nomancampaign.org for more information on their work & the events they run to raise funds.
I saw a advert for this row in a newspaper while in London last year & was immediately interested - the thought of rowing the Atlantic has always sort of appealed (although there is a part of me that thinks that after a few days I might like a helicopter to come along & take me back to home comforts!) so this row in a similar type of boat seemed like an ideal taster. It was also an opportunity to raise money for a cancer charity - I do tend to donate more to these charities than others, possibly because although I have been fortunate not to lose any family members through cancer, I have lost friends & aquaintances.
As a rower myself (albeit of the fixed seat variety) I am very much looking forward to this challenge & all it entails & I hope that you will be kind enough to support both me & the Noman charity by making a donation.
