We’re crowdfunding!

Why are we crowdfunding?

We are above all else a community club doing our best to support the people of Chester-le-Street, we have a great membership already at the club however we want to do more and work with more people from more backgrounds who may be interested in rowing, fitness or just coming along for a chat and a coffee.

Given our centralized location, ease of access and great facilities we now want to open our doors to our entire community including local schools, men’s health groups, charities who need accessible training facilities and other similar projects for the people of Chester-le-Street.

We plan to offer our indoor rowing sessions free of charge to these organized groups and also support them with a British Rowing qualified coach who can show them the ropes and get everyone enjoying rowing at the club.

How we’ll spend the money raised

In the simplest way possible, in order to deliver indoor rowing we need rowing machines! our plan is to invest in 5 additional rowing machines so we can maximize our space and deliver to groups of 20+ people at a time.

Our previous machines have lasted over 10 years so we hope this crowdfund can help support us for the next decade too.
