Para row boat ‘Pat’ launched

The Shanly Foundation was thrilled to be asked to name a new specialist boat for para-rowers based at Marlow Rowing Club.  The new boat, which the Foundation contributed £2,500 to, was launched on Sunday 6th May at the club.  It was an obvious choice to name the boat ‘Rivertime Pat’ after Pat Davis, founder of The Rivertime Boat Trust, a charity dear to the heart of the Shanly Foundation.  The Rivertime Boat Trust was established in 2007 and provides river trips and experiences for disables and disadvantaged children and adults on The Thames.  Tamra Booth, Shanly Foundation Trustee said “We wanted to name the boat after Pat who has, together with her husband Simon, made such a difference in the community and dedicated so much time to ensuring everyone, no matter how impossible it may seem, can enjoy life on the river”.
