On Friday 28th February ‘The Broster Buchanan Unsinkables’ are signed up to take part in the ‘Race the Thames 2020’ challenge at Olympic Park, London to raise money for London Youth Rowing, a ground breaking charity who encourage disadvantaged young people to be active and improve their physical, social and mental wellbeing.
LYR are passionate about making fitness and rowing accessible to young people from all walks of life; helping them get active, develop confidence and skills and have fun in the process! They are currently working with over 70 schools and 20 clubs. Last year over 5,500 participants took part in their programmes or activities, including over 250 young people with disabilities.

Broster Buchanan’s team of 8 will race the full length of the Thames (45 miles) on rowing machines, overlooking the buzz of the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships, with guest appearances from Olympic Rowers to help coach and motivate us. At this event Broster Buchanan will also host a stand to offer our careers advisory skills to 11-18 year olds through an interactive activity; the team are looking forward to meeting up to 2,000 people on the day.
CEO, Andrew Broster will be taking part in the challenge and has even threatened to dust off the rowing machine in his shed in preparation!
Thank you so much for your support – It really does mean a lot.
Wish us luck!
The Team at Broster Buchanan
