City Workers Needed To Row Hard

At the City Hall to raise funds for brain injury charity

The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) in Putney is looking for corporate teams to compete against teams from Minster Law, WSM Partners, Loans2Go, Cowan Architects, Pennington Manches, H+H Fire and Astro Communications at Row Hard for Neuro-disability, a team relay rowing challenge, on 17 June 2015 at the top of City Hall, hosted by Richard Tracey AM, London Assembly member for Wandsworth.

Row Hard aims to raise £50,000 to fund wheelchairs specially customised and adapted by the RHN’s specialist team of engineers. The wheelchairs restore independence and quality of life to adults affected by neurological disability.

Now in its sixth year, Row Hard pits 36 corporate teams of four up against each other in a 2 km relay race on Concept 2’s high-tech ergo rowing machines.

Tickets to the evening event, generously sponsored by Minster Law, include food and drink. There is also a charity auction, with prizes including a dinner for 10 in the BT Tower restaurant, a week in a holiday home in France, and a signed Chelsea shirt.

Natalie Spurrier, Team and Business Development Manager, Minster Law, said:
“Minster Law are keen supporters of the RHN and over the years have been impressed with the dedication of the charity’s entire team, and particularly in the assisted technology and bespoke wheelchair departments. We often find that people with severe brain injuries require the use of a wheelchair, so access to one that is bespoke, comfortable and functional can make a huge difference in improving their everyday lives.

“The RHN relies heavily on fundraising to ensure that it can continue its work with severely brain injured patients and their families, and we’re proud to be able to help by supporting Row Hard 2015. We encourage as many people as possible to get involved in the event this year.”

Anna Wall-Budden, Head of Events at the RHN, said:
“Row Hard has grown every year, and now attracts a wide range of supporters from a variety of sectors, all helping us to raise vital funds for new wheelchairs at the RHN. We’re so grateful to our sponsors, Minster Law, and to all the teams who have already signed up. Everyone who takes part makes a real difference, and we’re hoping that 2015 will be our biggest year yet.”
