Here at Draper Tools we’re pleased to announce our support for a very special charity effort – the Around the UK Charity Row.
This unique charity challenge will see a team of five enthusiastic rowers from Dorset attempting to row an Australian surf boat around Britain to raise money for two charities: Wessex Cancer Trust and Royal Marines Charitable Trust.
The journey is a gruelling 2,500 miles long and the team hope to complete the challenge in just 100 days, rowing an average of 25 miles a day. Their goal is to raise £50,000 to split equally between the two chosen charities.
Here at Draper Tools we’ll be supporting the team with the supply of essentials tools as well as helping to raise funds and awareness for the initiative. Today we’ll be donating the money raised from our monthly dress down Friday to the rowers.
The Around the UK Charity Row gets underway on the 2nd May 2015 – you can follow the team’s progress on their website www.ukcharityrow2015.com or keep up with them on Facebook and Twitter too. We’ll be sharing the team’s updates on the Draper social media channels too, so look out for the latest news from this epic challenge.
We’re proud to be supporting this special charity initiative and helping to raise funds for two incredibly worthwhile causes. Everyone at Draper Tools would like to wish the team the very best of luck for the journey ahead.
