Row 10 km so they don't have to walk 10 km for water. Just £15 could provide a person with safe water for life.
Here are some tips to help you have a great night!

  • Decide where to set up your rowing machine - a large space with some inspirational posters or a great window view is best
  • Make sure you have permission from the person who is in charge - a local community centre might let you use their space for free and you could get a few friends involved too
  • Ask people to sponsor you per 10 km - that's how long woman have to walk on average for their water.
  • Download a sponsorship form from the resources page and set up a fundraising page online to make it easy for people to support you
  • Work out how far you’re hoping to row and match this to a well-known distance. Paul advertised that he and the team was planning to row the distance from Dover to Calais, which really made the challenge more realistic for his supporters
  • Make sure people know when the row will be happening and invite them to come along and cheer you on
  • You can use posters, or post on Facebook to keep people informed
  • You could hold a raffle or a sweepstake alongside the row, to raise some extra money
  • Once you have finished your row, let everyone know how far you rowed
  • Make sure you collect sponsorship money promptly after the event
  • After the event let everyone know how much was raised and how the money will transform lives
