24HR ERG: KENDAL MOUNTAIN RESCUE

Big thank you to everyone who has already donated to our Go Fund me page, raising money for Kendal Mountain Rescue, who were a fundamental part of the Storm Desmond flooding response last December.

Over the past 24 hours, we have rowed a grand total of 697km in Alexandra Square!

Any donations are greatly appreciated and can be made on our page: gofund.me/xgxmpn7w

LANCASTER FLOODING

We’re currently unable to assess the extent of the damage to the boats. However, University security came down yesterday to seal up the caved in door and secured the hanging boats back on racks. Until further investigations into potential structural damage are done the boathouse is unsafe to enter.

We have been in contact with the LUSU sport and finance teams, who have put us in contact with the university property services. Once they’ve inspected the building to ensure it’s safe, we’ll start sorting out any insurance claims that need to be made.

We’re currently looking into modes of action going forward and will explore these options to ensure we choose the right option for the club going forward. Furthermore, a full breakdown on what the Go-Fund me donations will be spent on will also be posted.

We appreciate this update is all a bit vague and doesn’t state definitively what’s going to happen. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page or here for more  updates!

Thanks again for all your support and donations!
