Hurley Regatta Charity - 2017

1 November 2017

Regatta fun yields cash for The Chiltern Centre

The Hurley Regatta Committee is donating £2,500 from the proceeds of this year's Regatta to support the work of The Chiltern Centre - other donations are going to Windsor Life Guards & the 1st Henley Scout Group.

The donation to the Chiltern Centre was made on 1st November 2017. The 45th Hurley Regatta, held on 19 August, again had a full programme of river-based competitions throughout the day and lots of other attractions within the Regatta field for the enjoyment of competitors and visitors. This long-established community event continues to be popular with children and adults alike as well as raising much-needed funding for a number of local charities


Martin Fry - Regatta Chairman said "“The Chiltern Centre is our principal charity this year in recognition of the outstanding support they provide to both children and the people who take care of them”."

The amount we are able to donate each year is entirely dependant on the success of the Regatta. Some years major boat repairs or purchases, and other unforeseen expenses eat into our profit. So it is no small feat that we have always been able to donate a substantial amount to the chosen charity and for this we are continually grateful to our supporters, sponsors, competitors, spectators and helpers to whom we owe a big ‘thank you’.
