News : Bolton Atlantic Rowing Challenge... They've Done It!!!

The Bolton Atlantic team have arrived safely in Antigua after their gruelling 3,000 mile rowing race across The Atlantic Ocean. The team crossed the finishing line in 59 days 18 hours 4 minutes and 9 seconds, making them eighth overall and third in fours. They have done all this to help raise money for the Junior Mentoring Project at member club Bolton Lads and Girls Club.

The journey across The Atlantic couldn't have been more challenging for our Bolton Atlantic Challenge team as they have experienced 40ft waves, avoiding large sea life, painful salt sores and blisters, deprivation of sleep, homesickness, a bucket as a toilet facility, a diet of powdered cold sachets and even capsizing. 

They set themselves a target to raise 250,000 to support the clubs Junior Mentoring Project which currently has a waiting list of nearly 200 children.  

Now they are back on dry land the team are appealing for donations to help them achieve their target and to ultimately offer vital funds to support some of the most vulnerable children across the town. Watch their return to shore here http://youtu.be/2k-VM8f0Ca8

On behalf of everyone at LABGC we would like to congratulate them on such a fantastic achievement!
