60th Anniversary Fun Day & 24 hour Rowathon!

We rowed 100 miles to celebrate 100 years of Royal Navy Recognition for Sea Scouts Groups and our 60th anniversary in June 2019!

From 11am Saturday 15th June to 11am Sunday 16th June we are going to hold a 24 hour rowathon with the aim to row 100 miles to celebrate 100 years of Royal Navy recognition for Sea Scout Groups and raise money for our new HQ!

The 24hr sponsored rowathon will involve rowing or paddling the 1 mile circuit from the bridge outside the HQ down to the Stratford Road bridge and back.

If you'd like to take part in the Rowathon please email fundraising@2wk.org.uk or sign up here: Rowathon rowing rota!

How about getting a team from your company together or if you are a former member coming back to row and see our new jetties?

We are looking for companies to row for a donation. We'd also love former members to come back and join in too! We were hoping we could get a crowd together on the Saturday evening from 4-7pm before our Explorers do the night shift!

On Saturday 15th June we will also be holding a 'fun day' and have lots of extra activities from 11am - 4pm

Bouncy castle, cakes, refreshments, stalls, games, raffle (see below) and a BBQ. The Royal Navy will also be joining us with their 25 foot bungee!

All welcome to join in the fun and help support our 'Building a Future' appeal and help us raise the final funds to start building our new HQ in 2019, our 60th anniversary.

We will have display up about our new HQ project and information to take away. Please drop in if you want to find out more about the next phase of our new HQ 'Building a Future' project.
