Our story

We are taking part in the virtual 'Race the Thames' to raise money for London Youth Rowing and the School of Hard Knocks charities. Both carry out amazing work to support young people using the power of sport! The Boat of Hard Knocks is a collection of friends and colleagues who come together once a year to race the length of the River Thames (364km) in a week.

Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto LYR and School Of Hard Knocks.

Wow, what a week. Thank you to all of you who supported our efforts across the past 7 days of rowing, sweat and team work!. We made it across the finish line - with blisters, aches and pains - safe in the knowledge that we are making a difference to the work of our fantastic charities. Thank you!
