London’s young masons' club to raise cash for mental illness charity

On Saturday 12 March 2016, the Connaught Club will endeavour to row the length of the Thames and back (on rowing machines – a distance of nearly 700km) in aid of the mental health charity Rethink Mental Illness at the Fulham Reach Rowing Club.

Rethink Mental Illness, who in partnership with Mind, are behind the excellent Time to Change campaign, which aims to end the stigma of mental health.

So far, the club has raised nearly £3,000 for the charity via donations from its members, club members’ lodges and the sale of over 200 specially designed lapel pins which bear the event’s logo. Lapel pins are available via the club’s website: 

All monies raised will be donated directly to Rethink Mental Illness who run services and support groups that change people’s lives and challenge attitudes about mental illness. 

If you would like to get involved by rowing a few kilometres with the club, raise awareness of the endeavour, raise funds for the appeal, or would just like some more information, please see:
