Hurley Regatta Charity - 2016

11 November 2016

Regatta fun yields cash for B. E. S. T (Braywick Heath Employment Skills Training)

The Hurley Regatta Committee is donating £2,000 from the proceeds of this year's Regatta to support the work of B. E. S. T. Other donations are going to Windsor Life Guards, 1st Henley Scout Group & R&R.

The donation to B. E. S. T. was made on 11 November 2016. The 44th Hurley Regatta, held on 20 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
It was an rather blustery and wet day - so proceeds weren't as large as other years - but still it will make a difference to the charities we carefully selected.

Martin Fry - Regatta Chairman said "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"

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’.
