Well done and thank you to Karl Andreson!

Well done and thank you to Karl Andreson!

Earlier this year Karl Andresen contacted us to say he intended to do a sponsored row to raise funds for Beaumond House. He intended to row the distance of a marathon on a rowing machine and he hoped to raise £500 in doing so. 

On 10th May 2015, Karl set about his challenge which he did at the Sports Direct Gym. Not only did he complete his challenge, he did so in record time - 2hours 53mins 44 seconds which, according to the Concept World Rankings is the 24th fastest time for the year. Furthermore, Karl also smashed his original target of raising £500 – raising a whopping £2067.33 in total. 

Whist Beaumond House thank Karl very much for his efforts and the money he raised, Karl would very much like to extend his thanks to Pina Dickinson from Hair by Pina at North Muskham for the great job she did fundraising on Karl’s behalf and also to Daz Adcock and his Gym ‘n’ Tonic group who help Karl greatly with support whilst he rowed. 

Well done to all involved, it was a tremendous effort, and Karl is already planning his next challenge!
