Mevagissey Rowing Club has donated £500 to Mevagissey Activity Centre. Club Chairman, Mike Roberts presented the cheque to Martin Hopkinson, Chair of the Activity Centre after rowing club members completed a 24 hour sponsored row on the Centre’s rowing machines achieving a total distance of 181km. Rowers ranging in age from 12 to 65 took part, each rowing at least half an hour.
The event was well supported by local businesses and Club Secretary, Martin Walton said, “We are grateful to everyone to sponsored the event and made it such a success. It’s a pleasure to be able to support, in turn, the Activity Centre which is such an important resource for the rowing club and the village as a whole”.
The club rows from Portmellon every Monday and Thursday and is open to anyone who would like to come along and have a go at gig rowing. You can contact the club via the website,www.mevagisseygigclub.co.uk
