We are pleased to announce our continued sponsorship of Star Rowing Club, Bedford. Signed in July 2019, our new agreement with the club covers the next 3 years and allows the club to invest further in equipment and development of various competitive teams.
Since its fledgling days, the club has built a strong national reputation for sporting excellence and the club’s achievements include British, International and Olympic competitions.
Almost everyone at Star Club is a volunteer who works hard for the love of their club and the facilities they provide. Their commitment to the local community includes provisions for pupils from state schools (where a full time community coach is funded by two charitable trusts) and this is as important to Star Club as nurturing their top athletes.
Our sponsorship over the years has supported the junior squad, largely due to the purchase of a new quad boat for the older athletes to use.
Our support has also helped build a platform for Henley success: including the first women's entry in years in 2018. Success with the men's team has seen a victory in the Brittania Cup and 2 semi-final and 2 quarter-final entries in the Wyfold Cup.
We are proud to be able to help and support our local sporting community and wish Star Club all the best in the forthcoming season.
