Stephen Harpin - Row the Amazon

Why we need your help

In November 2015 five amateur rowers from Shropshire in the UK will embark on an epic journey of adventure that has only ever been attempted once before.

The challenge? To row the navigable length of the Amazon River, from Nauta in Peru to Macapá in Brazil – a total distance of 2077 miles – totally unsupported and completely self-funded.

They are not athletes, just five ambitious but otherwise ordinary men in their 40s, determined to stretch themselves, achieve something extraordinary and raise awareness and funds for some exceptional charities. 

Stephen is raising funds for the 1st Stocksfield Scout Group, who are trying to replace their ageing hut to provide new facilities for the community.

Their existing premises leak and can only be accessed via a wooden staircase. They are currently raising the money to construct a new, fully accessible building. There is already a long list of potential groups wanting to use it: from dementia sufferers to inner-city youth groups. With your help we can bring this a step closer.

Bravo! Let's hope the scouts will have a new hut soon (before the present one falls down!)
