This month's project for voluntary subs
Time & Location
About the event
Having funded two schools in the EA Youth Rowing Project, our first project in 2022 is to fund grassroots rowing in Birmingham. In conjunction with Love Rowing, we are supporting a youth rowing programme called B-Row.
Birmingham is the 9th most deprived local authority in the country with 40% of population living in areas that are in the lowest decile for poverty. 51% of children (under 16s) live in the 10% most deprived areas.
The vision of B Row is to make Birmingham a city where everyone can have access to rowing. The initiative delivers rowing sessions for children from low income household families in the most deprived areas. B Row has a focus on increasing the children's confidence and self esteem, with a goal to help the children become active, determined and successful young people.
This month your donations will go towards the B Row state school programme which is delivered alongside open access sessions for young people. Our goal is to raise £3,000, every penny of which will go towards coaching a mix of indoor sessions and on water sessions, helping another 50 children onto a programme that is working with 12 schools and between 350 and 400 children per year.
