BRANDED! backs Row4Victory
Late last year, Will Quarmby, Duncan Roy, Fraser Mowlem and Glyn Sadler began their race across the Atlantic Ocean for the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
Setting off from the Canary Islands in their boat named Victory, the team rowed 3,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic in 39 days, reaching the finish line in Antigua in fifth place. The challenge is known as the ‘World’s Toughest Row’ with more people having reached the summit of Mount Everest than rowed across an ocean. On average, each rower loses 12kg during the race and burns over 5,000 calories per day.
To commemorate 100 years since the end of World War 1, the team chose to raise money for the Royal British Legion and Soldier On! which are two charities close to their hearts, especially as the team is made up of a royal engineer, an ex-royal marine, a serving chief technician, and a civilian.
BRANDED! first heard about the challenge during a Poppy Appeal fundraising dinner at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall in York and were inspired to support the team. Erin Hyde, Office Administrator at BRANDED! explained: “BRANDED! has officially been supporting them since February 2018. We’ve stayed up to date with their journey through Twitter posts and we were able to live-track the boat throughout the race.
“As part of our sponsorship it was thrilling to see our logo on the hull of the boat during their promotional visit to the John Smith’s meeting at York Racecourse last July. We would like to congratulate the team for their incredible efforts in training, fundraising and completing the race - all for such great causes.”
