Hurley Regatta Charities - 2014

30 November 2014

Regatta fun yields cash for Alexander Devine

The Hurley Regatta Committee is donating £2,700 from the proceeds of this year's Regatta to support the work of the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service. Other donations are going to Windsor Lifeguards, Furze Platt Scouts, and Swan Lifeline bringing the total donated for the year to £3,350.

When making the donation to the charity, Martin Fry, Hurley Regatta Chairman, said:
The Hurley Regatta Committee decided earlier in 2014 to select the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service to be the principal charity to be supported from the net proceeds of this year’s Regatta in recognition of the tremendous work it is doing to bring improved locally-based palliative and hospice care services for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions as well as specialist support for their families


The 42nd Hurley Regatta, held on 16 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
Once again, we are indebted to our many helpers and those who support the Regatta by providing funding ahead of the event and so helping both underwrite our costs and swell the sum we are able to disburse to the charities


    Donations to charitable causes in 2014 were:
    1. Alexander Devine £2,700
    2. Windsor Lifeguards £350
    3. Furze Platt Scouts £250
    4. Swan Lifeline £50

    5. Total £3,350

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’.
