How Pershore's Rich is aiming to pull in the cash

Evesham Editorial 5th Nov, 2022   0

A BID to row the length of the River Avon without getting wet to raise cash for BBC Children in Need has been launched by a Pershore fitness studio owner.

Rich Grieh, owner at RSG Fitness Studio, is rowing the length of the Worcestershire landmark to raise money for the much-loved cause on November 19.

Using the rowing machine in the High Street gym. Rich and his staff are hoping to attract local support and help in their fund-raising challenge.

“I hope to row the length of the River Avon (85 miles) in one day, with the help of a few friends and clients who train with me,” he said.

“Our children and young people are the most important people for the future, so I’m trying to raise money to benefit those in need.

“With the help BBC Children in Need charity gives, hopefully, many children can seek the help and support they need to change their lives.”

Pershore’s own Danielle’s Cakes will be there to support the rowers and to sell cupcakes – raising more funds for the charity.

“It would be amazing to get support from the local community in Pershore for our fantastic row-a-thon,” he added.

“Please come down and support the crew. It would be great to see the people of Pershore pushing us on”
