24 Hour Rowathon

Posted: 30th November 2016

Our fundraising event rowing for 24 hours at The Grand Hotel, Leicester.

On the 25th November, our very own Mary Morgan kicked off our 24 hour rowathon – with the help of BBC Radio Leicester and Bleddyn Jones. This was 24 hours on a rowing machine from 12pm Saturday to 12pm Sunday.

Teams took it upon themselves to row for an hour or two (thank you to those who rowed throughout the early morning when the rest of us were in the land of nod)! The event was supported by generous teams and individuals from (here’s comes a list)… Mercure Leicester The Grand Hotel, Hollingsworth Solicitors, Torr Waterfield Accountants, Uncle Frank (band), CITE, Steamin’ Billy Brewery, Creation Builders, Porters Carpets, HPLC, Hartshorne Electrical, The Beacon Magazine, Wheat Landscaping, BNI Olympus, Soar Valley Press, Vehicle Consulting, Berkley Estate Agents, DJS Restoration, Conix IT, M & E Accident Repairs, Parcel Yard, Gorey Accountants and Abbey Gym.

Mary Morgan completed the row at 12pm the following day. Altogether, we rowed a total of 253, 896 metres! A fantastic total of over £2,500 was raised from the event. We would like to thank everyone involved in the event and congratulate Mary for staying awake for over 30 hours!
