Our committee met last night and agreed to continue to apply for funding from other bodies but to also seek sponsorship. We are well aware that until the first build starts, there is little to show prospective sponsors beyond display boards and local news coverage. Therefore we have decided that we will start the project with the funds for just 1 boat, confident that when we start the ‘doors open’ build on South Quay, the interest we gather will prove a great attraction. So we are seeking £5,000 to enable us to start. This will purchase the kit and materials for 1 boat plus the rental, insurance and ancillary overheads we need for the workshop. If you are interested in boat-building and rowing activities in Kings Lynn or wish to discuss commercial sponsorship opportunities, use the Contact/Join us tab or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
