Love Rowing is British Rowing’s Charitable Foundation and was launched in December 2019. Like many charities, the pandemic significantly reduced our ability to raise funds in 2020 and during the first half of 2021.
In June 2021, we launched The Big Row – our annual fundraiser which raised over £30,000 and we have continued the momentum from there. A trustee led charity, Love Rowing aims to transform lives through the sport, bringing new diverse communities to rowing.
We want more people to experience rowing, whether on land or water, with a focus on traditionally underserved groups, including;
➡️ Young people from low socioeconomic communities
➡️ People living with a disability
➡️ Ethnically diverse communities.
Since we launched, we've supported almost 50 projects throughout the UK, positively impacting on over 5,000 people.
