We would like to thank Newnham Film Club for their generous contribution of £400 to our project. Newnham Film Club is a not for profit group that shows films of a wide variety of genres at The Club in Newnham. Admission to events is free but donations are welcome. All profits go to local or other deserving projects. Please support this wonderful initiative. See http://www.newnhamonsevern.co.uk/film-club/ or see their facebook page.
We have also been successful in a fundraising bid and received a £2000 match funding award from the Forest of Dean District Council.
Thanks to generous support from Alec Jordan and Zaznak Coastal rowing, the film Club, and money raised by Paul Willliams’ talk on his Atlantic rowing experiences we are well on our way to acquiring our first skiff kit.
