Lea R.C. has a colourful and successful history and a fantastic set of achievements. We are now more than 40 years old, but our origins stretch back much further. Thousands of people have been involved with our club over the years as rowers, coxswains, coaches and supporters. And we want to stay in touch.
FRIENDS OF THE LEA is our initiative to allow past and present Lea people to stay connected and support the club. Friends will be sent quarterly updates on the Club’s activities, and invited to brilliant events that bring everyone together, including an annual party.
As a Friend you will also have the opportunity to buy exclusive merchandise, including a club clothing range and prestigious pin badge. And, perhaps most importantly, our Friends are able to support the Lea's quest to compete and win at the highest level of club rowing.
Anyone can join FRIENDS OF THE LEA. All we ask is for you to consider a regular donation to the club by Direct Debit.
To support us as a Friend of the Lea please select how much you would like to contribute a month from the links below. The links will open in GoCardless where you can complete your Friends of the Lea Direct Debit details.
(Gift Aid: If you are a UK taxpayer and would like Friends of the Lea to claim tax back on your donation, please also complete the Gift Aid declaration. This will mean that for every £1 you donate, we can claim back 25p at no cost to you.)
We always welcome new members who want to compete at the highest level nationally and internationally, or simply want to enjoy rowing socially and be part of our community.
Our aim with FRIENDS OF THE LEA is to support our charitable objective of making top-level rowing achievable – and ultimately to chalk up more wins at Henley Regattas. To do this, we need to ensure our fleet is up to the standards of our athletes. Our hope is that FRIENDS OF THE LEA will secure this important target in future.
