Loch Lomond RC Fundrasing at Christmas - 24th December 2016
Due to the huge generosity of members of our local area, we made an AMAZING amount of £1574.55. 
This would not have been possible without the huge effort from all our fabulous members, young and not so young and their family and friends who donned festive hats with Rowing Club Hoodies and gave up their precious time on Christmas Eve to smile and chat whilst packing bags. 
This was a huge task, when most would rather be on the sofa watching festive movies, but you all rose to the occasion and the Rowing Club have made lots of money because of your efforts. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
