Winkworth announces new charity partnership with London Youth Rowing

Winkworth Franchising Ltd is delighted to announce its new charity partner for 2020 as London Youth Rowing.


Winkworth Franchising Ltd is delighted to announce its new charity partner for 2020 as London Youth Rowing. LYR is a London-based charity whose mission is to encourage disadvantaged young people across the capital to get active and improve their physical, social and mental wellbeing, whilst also helping to develop crucial life skills necessary for both the classroom and the workplace.

As with its previous charity support, this partnership will be led by Winkworth’s head office teams who look forward to a host of new opportunities including volunteering at LYR events, providing mentoring, workshops and work experience for young people as part of the Breaking Barriers programme, as well as the usual fundraising and challenge events.

Dominic Agace, CEO at Winkworth, comments:

“London Youth Rowing is a fantastic charity whose work over the last few years has helped to shape the futures of many young people in and around London. Whilst the focus of this new partnership is not on housing like with our last charity, London Youth Rowing and Winkworth possess many of the same principles and we feel there’s a huge amount of potential to make an impact with those who benefit from the charity’s work. We’re all very much looking forward to supporting London Youth Rowing going forward – starting with volunteering at their biggest annual event, the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships, this month.”

Matt Rostron, CEO at London Youth Rowing, adds:

London Youth Rowing are delighted to be announced as Winkworth’s Charity of the Year. Our partnership with Winkworth over the coming year will not only support LYR in offering young Londoners the chance to experience rowing, many for the first time but will also hopefully open doors to future education and job pathways. We are both grateful and excited to see what the next year will bring.”

London Youth Rowing was founded by Jim Downing in 2004 in the hope that young people across London would have access to an otherwise traditionally niche sport and in turn help the rowing community become a more diverse, more inclusive environment. More information can be found at
