Students’ three day fund raising row for Sea Cadets

Yesterday two students took to the water for a three day row along the Thames, from Radley College in Oxfordshire to Radley College in London, to raise funds for the Sea Cadets’ On The Water programme.

George Bell and Sebastien Codet will row for over six hours a day until Saturday to cover the 97 mile distance. Unaided in the challenge, the duo will only stop to sleep in the evenings in a tent they’re carrying with them.

“We are raising money for the Sea Cadets because we believe that the charity gives amazing opportunities to young people in the most deprived parts of the UK,” says Bell. “Any funds we raise will go towards the On The Water programme that is being run this summer.”

On The Water provides thousands of young people from low-income communities the chance to experience waterborne adventure and earn qualifications. First piloted in London in 2019, this year it’s been expanded to include Birmingham and Liverpool.

By providing a programme of free activities including sailing, rowing and paddle sports, the Sea Cadets says it offers disadvantaged young people the chance for exercise and fun, but more importantly longer-lasting benefits of increased confidence, new friends and expanded horizons.
