Weather no bother now for coaches at Stratford Boat Club following generous donation

Ian Hughes 17th Jan, 2020

COACHES at Stratford Boat Club are ready for whatever the weather throws at them thanks to the generosity of Warwick Events.

The event and design company has provided the club’s volunteer coaches with all-weather jackets to keep them warm and dry while coaching the club’s rowers on the Avon and at regional and national events.

Coach and former club captain Dr Graham Collier said: “Having support like this makes a big difference to our club. We’re the oldest sports’ club in Stratford and we’re still here because of all the great community of volunteers we have. So, to have a company like Warwick Events seeing us striving for success, and wanting to help us, is really appreciated – our new jackets means we’ll no longer go home all cold and wet.”

Warwick Events, based on John Street in Stratford, design experiential events for national and international groups.

Emma Wellstead, managing director at Warwick Events, said, “We often see Stratford crews our in all weathers on the river and we admire the dedication that the coaches put into the training and mentoring of their crews.

“Stratford Boat Club’s success doesn’t happen by accident: it takes lots of thought, care and a genuine passion to make success happen and Warwick Events share this ethos with Stratford Boat Club. With their Warwick Events sponsored Musto jackets, the coaches will at least be able to keep warm and dry.”
