Currie Motors Team Up With Coxless Rowers to Raise Money for Breast Cancer Care
London based automotive retailer Currie Motors teams up with the Coxless Rowers to help raise money for Breast Cancer Care.
Currie Motors has formed a partnership with all-female rowing team, the Coxless Rowers, to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.
The four girls were invited to Currie Motors’ Twickenham dealership on Saturday 23rd February, where they spent the day on rowing machines set up on the forecourt. The event coincided with the England vs. France game in the Six Nations rugby tournament, which was held at the Twickenham stadium. Currie Motors’ staff and customers, as well as passing rugby fans, contributed generously, with over £890 being raised on the day.
Event organiser and member of the Coxless Rowers, Laura Penhaul said, “It was a fantastic day and we ended up raising over £890. [The sales manager] Phil and his team were amazing and really helped with supporting us. We wouldn’t have got that without them.”
The money raised at Twickenham is part of a larger fundraising effort that will see the Coxless Rowers row the length of the South Pacific in June. Their route will take them from San Francisco to Cairns via Hawaii and Samoa. On completion, the team will have broken three world records and traversed more than 7,500 miles over a period of six months. The route has never been completed by a team of four, or as a continuous three stage row.
A spokesperson at Currie Motors said, “We’re thrilled to be a part of this fantastic fundraising effort by the Coxless Rowers. The event was a huge success and we wish the girls the best of luck in their challenge.” Check out the Currie Motors Facebook page for photos.
