CHSW Annual Gig Row 2019

Children’s Hospice South West held their 19th Annual Gig Row at Newquay Harbour on Sunday, July 14.

Community Fundraiser at CHSW, Alice Merrett, reported, “With the sale of raffle tickets and donations given on the day the event has so far raised over £700, with hopefully more donations to come.

“Overall we were so pleased with the number of volunteers who took part – an amazing 14 teams of three novice rowers and one novice cox – and we are so grateful for the continued support from the Newquay Rowing Club and their members who made up the crews, many of whom take part every year.”

Alice concluded, “With 2020 being the CHSW Gig Row’s 20th anniversary we are hoping to make it a bumper year for the event.”

1 – A Team Fabrications (ATF)

2 – Newquay Lions

3 – Children’s Hospice South West
