Join a sponsored "row" from London to Bucharest (or Bucharest to London!) to help raise funds for the salary of at least one nurse for Hospice Casa Sperantei, Romania (15,000)

London to Bucharest is 1,500 miles. It takes approximately 1 hour to row a mile and we hope to find 150 rowers who will row 10 miles each. 

If you have a rowing machine at home, great, but if not, you can improvise with something that represents a boat and a couple of pieces of wood, or even broom handles for oars!!

You can row for as long as you like and take as long as you like to cover the 10 miles. Just keep a record of the time and take a picture of yourself doing it for the website. Be as creative as possible!

Graham, our CEO and Founder, is the first to volunteer and you can watch his video message here. He is using a kiddies inflatable boat and two pieces of wood found in the garden!

The Impact

If 150 rowers raise £100 each in sponsorship, that will raise the annual salary of one nurse, but we hope that might even be able to cover the salaries of more than one! As you can imagine the situation in Romania is extremely challenging and the hospice has been hit hard by the corona virus problems. 

Why is it important?

Fundraising has been hit hard in Romania, there is little help from the government, yet we have been inundated by referrals of patients in the advanced stages who desperately need our help. Our hospices have remained open, and many of our patients are receiving care at home or through video technology. We want t be able to continue this help.

Graham launched his boat and the Appeal on 14th May but you can sign up at any time. Once you have signed up don't forget to set up your fundraising page. You will find all the details you need below. Please let your friends and contacts know about this event so that as many possible get involved.

THANK YOU on behalf of all the staff and patients in Romania who need our help at this difficult time!
