Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]The challenge is to row across the channel - not the short route as the French wont let rowing boats in their waters! A group of theatre staff from Portsmouth Hospital with little or no natural rowing ability will attempt to cross from Belgium to Ramsgate(55 miles) in June in a Cornish Gig Rowing Boat(Google it and laugh). On a good day it will be 15 hours of labour (and tortuous banter) but it will be worth it to raise money for the Dreams Come True charity and also specifically George, the child of a member of our staff who has a leukaemia requring 5 years of chemotherapy treatment, to have a dream trip away. Any money donated goes to both causes. [/p][p]The team has been training ridiculously hard to turn from lard arses to rowing machines - a big ask in itself! [/p][p]Any donation is greatly appreciated.[/p][p]Pleas find more details about George and the challenge at www.qacharitychannelrow.com.[/p][p]Cheers Jim[/p]
