In August, Graeme Gordon, current Master of the Worshipful Company of Chartered Accountants, will be rowing from the source of the River Thames in Gloucestershire all the way to London to raise money for a group of charities, including The Worshipful Company of Feltmakers of London. Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity will benefit from the Feltmakers' share, as their chosen charity.
Graeme will run a half marathon where the Thames is a stream before rowing the next 160 miles in a single scull rowing boat through 45 locks to the Tower of London. His goal is to raise at least £50,000. Of course, we'll be supporting Graeme all the way in this amazing challenge!
