Since Spring 2015 the Rowing Foundation, supported by the Henley Stewards’ Charitable Trust, and British Rowing, has allocated grants of up to £3000 for the refurbishment of boats used by juniors, to eight rowing clubs throughout the country. Initially only Project Oarsome boats manufactured by Janousek were eligible for the scheme but after a review by the Trustees, it has been decided that, for the time being, all boats regardless of the original manufacture that are being used EXCLUSIVELY by juniors are eligible for the scheme.
The applications will be dealt with by the Trustees of the Rowing Foundation and there will be one grant each month.
The applications are to be submitted in the form of a handwritten A4 sheet of plain paper by a junior rower who has been through the J14 category reflecting their passion for the sport and the need to get their boats refurbished.
Applications are to be submitted by the first day of each month to:
Jeremy Dale, The King’s School, Ely, Cambridgeshire, CB7 4DB
They will be assessed by Trustees of the Rowing Foundation and the successful and unsuccessful applicants will be advised within 14 days. An unsuccessful club may submit a new application in 4 months.
