3 Totally Thames Oarsome Challenge 2015 The fundraising challenge Once you ve committed to the rowing challenge, you need to get organised to raise the money. Now s the time to find the strengths in your team and work together both on and off the water. Get organised We have had some very successful fundraisers recently they all have one thing in common, they got organised and started asking! The training team from AHOY taught us to row and then encouraged us, the sponsorship was remarkably easy to raise because it is a cause that sells itself and the rowing itself was an amazing experience. Heather, WiP Warriors Set up your online donation page Set up a team online donation page using JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving. Fundraising deposit at registration When you come for your registration, your team will be asked to sign the fundraising pledge and will need to pay the registration fee of 180 per team. In addition you will commit to fundraising a minimum of 1,800 (includes registration fee). Why fundraise?

I d never rowed before, but from the start the experience was fantastic!

We provide a reception and prize-giving at the end of the Challenge at The AHOY Centre in Deptford. You are welcome to invite supporters and friends to the finish.

You no doubt have lots of ideas for fund raising and The AHOY Centre has a list of various fundraising events and ideas that have worked well for other teams. AHOY will assist you in setting up a donation page on Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving. All ideas are welcome and we will try and help you with advice and assistance where needed. When does the fundraising have to be completed? We ask that the 1,800 minimum be raised two weeks before your challenge. As some of your sponsors will donate after the event, the total amount will include any pledges that you have. What happens to the money we raise? The AHOY Centre relies on money raised by great people like you to change the lives of disadvantaged young people or people with disabilities through the medium of sailing and rowing. All the money raised goes directly into running programmes and courses and keeping the charity going and has a direct impact on the lives of people who benefit from The AHOY Centre s work. For example: l For us to train one young disabled person for an RYA (Royal Yachting Association) qualification is 1,000 l A Sailability Taster Day (for disabled people) is 80 per person l Waterproof jackets for disabled people cost 140 each l A set of sails cost 1100, all our sails now need replacing. Boat covers cost 350 which also need replacing l To train a disadvantaged or at-risk youth to become an RYA Assistant Instructor is 2,400 l To run our Shipmates Programme aimed at local young people aged 8-18 which develops life skills such as planning, team work and leadership through sailing and rowing costs 95,000 per year. We encourage our Rowing Challengers to meet the people who will benefit from your rowing and fundraising efforts when you are training at The AHOY Centre. What happens if we don t make the fundraising target? Unfortunately we can t let the team take part in their challenge unless they have raised the money pledged. However, with a good fundraising plan this has not proved a problem for teams in the past. Do we have to bring refreshments for the challenge? Please bring whatever you feel you need, most rowers will want energy snacks and filled water bottles. What happens after it s all over? We like to maintain strong links with all our rowers and invite you to our events and volunteering opportunities. We would also like to keep you up to date with the charity s news and other events,so will ask you if you wish to be signed up for our mailing list. Can I become further involved with the charity? Yes please! We have many areas within the AHOY where we need help with fundraising, marketing, helping with activities through to rowing and sailing instructors. If you are interested let us know, so we can discuss in more detail. Can I carry on rowing after the challenge? Yes! We actively encourage our rowers to continue rowing with the AHOY and have a programme of events advertised on our website.
