Sacco Mann Charity Rowing Challenge

Once again the Sacco Mann Rowing Challenge is back! Our annual rowing challenge, now in its third year, really saw the teams go head to head with even more competitiveness than previous years.

The setting was the ground floor reception at Broadgate on the Headrow in Leeds City Centre on 22nd September with rowing machines kindly provided by Pure Gym.

16 teams competed throughout the day, rowing 2000m between the four members of each team, with the fastest time taking the Champions Trophy! (Fun Fact: a total of 32000m was rowed throughout the day!)

It was a fantastic day, lots of energy (a few bruised limbs and egos) and incredible times and most importantly £726.23 raised to split between our chosen charities! Thank you everyone who donated in order to row and passers-by who donated on the day! All the money raised is being split between two incredible and local charities, Candlelighters and Simon on the Streets.

Candlelighters support families facing children's cancer in Yorkshire. They get involved in all sorts of different projects to help ordinary families who are facing extraordinary circumstances and the money raised goes towards Chemo ducks, equipment on wards and clinics. Visit their website here.

Simon on the Streets provide emotional and practical support for those with nowhere else to turn. They aim to empower and make positive change in the lives of those living on the streets or in other difficult circumstances. Visit their website here.

Our day rounded off with the grudge re match between LCF Law and Sagars Ltd. Having just missed out on 1st place last year to Sagars, LCF were ready! However after it being neck and neck for the first two rowers Sagars clinched victory again! The live footage was streamed across our Facebook and provided a very entertaining watch!

Video footage of every race and leader board can be found on our Facebook and Twitter

Thank you to everyone who participated, cheered teams on, supported us on social media and donated on the day!

Keep your eyes peeled for our next charity event where you can be involved! More to be revealed soon….
