Situation

Increased interest in rowing across the country and success at Hinksey has led to an enlarged club membership (and a waiting list), with a growing number of applications from athletes from disadvantaged backgrounds and a higher proportion of members remaining with Hinksey until age 18. Currently Hinksey needs additional appropriate equipment to meet the training needs of all members and more funds to support membership bursaries for those members in need of financial assistance.

Solution

To fulfil our mission of being inclusive, widening participation and offering appropriate sculling and rowing training for all we will secure funds: 1. To provide bursaries to support participation of students who require financial assistance. 2. To provide the equipment needed to put those athletes on the water.
