We welcome any donations to the club.
The club has significant expenses each year to ensure it remains competitive at the highest level of University rowing. Future donations will be invested in: coaching, equipment and boat maintenance.
If you are interested in making a contribution to the club, please send an email to Saskia Tideman, our PR and Fundraising secretary, at email@example.com.
From September 2017, MUBC has chosen to support FOP Friends with its fundraising efforts by donating 50% of all funds raised from our various events throughout the year. We believe that by staying local, we can work closely together to achieve the best for both of our causes.
FOP Friends is a small charity based in Sale, (only 5 minutes away from the boat house!) which advocates awareness of and funds research into a cure for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progresiva (FOP).
FOP is one of the rarest and most disabling genetic conditions known to medicine, causing bone to form in muscles and other connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments. Bridges of extra bone develop, in many cases, across the joints, progressively restricting movement and forming a second skeleton that imprisons the body in bone.
FOP Friends is the only UK based charity or organisation dedicated to raising money for research into treatments and hopefully a cure, and provides support and resources to those with FOP. 100% of the money they raise goes towards funding a team of researchers dedicated to finding a cure for FOP (charity operating costs are covered by grants).
We are splitting our fundraising efforts this year with FOP Friends, as we believe it is a fantastic charity, and want to give something back to the local community. You can read more about FOP and the work of the charity by visiting their website: www.fopfriends.com
