Pulling Together For Gold
The Jeppe Boats and Blades Trust was set up in 2020 with the goal of equipping Jeppe Rowers with quality equipment, giving them the opportunity of competing at the highest level.
We have been overwhelmed by the support of the school, the rowing club and a growing number of Jeppe Old Boys, who share our vision to see Jeppe Rowing grow to become a bastion of schoolboy rowing in the country.
The trust works in close collaboration with the Director of Rowing, who defines projects that need funding, which we then take to the larger Jeppe rowing community for financing.
OUR CURRENT PROJECT
Following the successful purchase of a brand new, Swift 8+ in 2020, Damascus, our first goal for 2021 is to raise R 225,000 which will pay for the 13 boats and blades, which, with the help of Jeppe High School, we acquired through an auction in late 2020.
The acquisition of this equipment means that Jeppe Boats and Blades fulfilled a 5-year plan in its first year. The new fleet of competitive boats means that Jeppe Rowing can more than double in size and significantly bolster the club’s competitiveness.
We plan to raise these funds through;
Adopt A Boat, your chance to sponsor & name a boat
Auctions, raffles and selling brand merchandise on our auction and shop page
Donations, one off donations and monthly debit orders on our donation page
