We did it! Success in our very first Great River Race was primed by blue skies and a beaming sun, which inspired us along our 21.6 mile route in a time of 2 hours and 56 minutes!

Thank you to all who cheered us on and sponsored our rowing team so generously in support of our vision to see every child in need raised in a strong family. We have raised a total of £7,955 and because of you, we will be able impact more children and come alongside more families facing disadvantages.

Those who followed our story will know that this was a special event for us, with the race starting in Millwall, where our first and longest standing partnership is, and ending in Richmond, where Kids Matter was born – a physical representation of the Kids Matter journey.

It was a privilege to be involved, and before we close the book on this epic adventure, we must thank our brilliant rowers for sharing themselves with us, to raise funds for the year ahead. Watch the below video for a final word from some of our team!
