Trafford Rowing Club makes running start for 2020 following kind donation
Owner of the Bridgewater Canal, Peel L&P has donated £500 to Trafford Rowing Club to help fund a new coxless quad.
Located on the Bridgewater Canal in South Manchester, Trafford Rowing Club is a small community club which encourages rowing in the local community whether it is a gentle paddle through the suburbs of South Manchester or competing at the highest level, the WJ16 squad collected Bronze at the National Championships last year.
General Manager of the Bridgewater Canal, Peter Parkinson visited the club to make the donation. Peter said: “We’re proud to be supporting Trafford Rowing Club with this donation and look forward to hearing of their progress in the coming months. Peel L&P will also be carrying out some canal side works in the coming months to improve the area, which will help prevent damage to the boats when they are launched.”
Chairman at Trafford Rowing Club, Graham Whistance said: “It was a pleasure to meet Peter this weekend and we would like to thank Peel L&P and the Bridgewater Canal for its continued support in our club.”
Peel L&P is a regeneration business with generations of history and is now responsible for some of the most transformational development projects in the UK today.
Executive Director of Property Investment and Management, Mark Whittaker added: “As a business, we’re dedicated to investing in our communities for today, tomorrow and generations to come. The Bridgewater Canal is used by many people from different walks of life from Runcorn to Leigh and we’re proud to support a variety of community groups, charities and causes along the route.”
