QHMF help to fund new boat for Chiswick School


The Quintin Hogg Memorial Fund working with the Chiswick Rowing Trust, which promotes the growth of youth rowing, has agreed to buy a new coxed four boat for Chiswick School, a local state secondary mixed comprehensive school.


Chiswick School rows from the Quintin Boat Club boathouse. The addition of this new boat will enable the school to compete in local rowing regattas and gain valuable experience in competition. The school has four rowing groups this year; ranging from novices in year 8 up to year 11s who have now been rowing for three years, expertly led by Jackie Eastwood, Chiswick School Head Coach. The school has a strong group of year 8s who are looking to train up and begin competing in local regattas against other local schools and clubs. Good Luck!

The addition of this boat will certainly encourage and inspire the students to continue to row as they go through the school and hopefully some to continue into adulthood. As a school we are very fortunate to be so close to the River and have the ability to offer our students this opportunity.
