Spinnaker are delighted to be helping London Youth Rowing (LYR) in their search for two 40ft containers for their new pontoon at London’s Olympic Park. We’re shouting out for help from our shipping friends.
LYR work with 60 schools in London and use rowing “as a tool to motivate disconnected young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to find their value in society and empower them to find their path to achieve their potential and have pride in what they can achieve. In short, to develop successful, determined, active young people.”
This is not just about getting youngsters on the water, but about connecting them with industry and building teamwork, leadership and problem-solving skills.
When the new Olympic Park site is up and running, it will be in use 7 days a week., LYR are seeking partners to help them deliver the facilities to be able to use this site. The containers are a huge part of this.
If you are able to help in any way with knowledge, logistics, container sales or donations, fundraising …anything at all, please email Andy Triggs Hodge OBE at LYR ([email protected]) or our own Phil Parry here at Spinnaker ([email protected]).
