MORE THAN $30 000 was raised in the 10th Annual Row For Charity competition which was recently staged in Carlisle Bay, Bridgetown.The competition, which was organised by Variety, the Children’s Charity, attracted thirty-seven registered teams, each sponsored by businesses across the island. Sixteen entered for “The Wind Warriors Wonder Race”(amateur rowers) and the same amount entered for the Motor Maniacs Madness Race (experienced rowers).“Bougainvillea Aquaholics”, which was sponsored by Bougainvillea Beach Resort, placed first in the experienced race. The teams from Going Places and the Stansfeld Scott “Joint Care Pirates” claimed second and third places in what “was almost a dead heat”.According to president of the charity Amanda Mckay, proceeds this year would help children with congenital heart diseases in Barbados, who lacked the funds to pay for their operations.Chairman of the resort Gordon Seale said “so many people volunteer to do such a lot of good work behind scenes. To them we say thank you”. (AH)
