ROSS Rowing Club graduate Morgan Baynham-Williams needs help raising money to take part in the World University Rowing Championships this month.

Baynham-Williams, who won the 2016 Oxford Boat Race with Oxford University, needs to raise £1,700 to get her to the Championships in Shanghai on August 10-12.

Leander’s top cox is looking to break into the senior Great Britain rowing team training for the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020.

Great Britain Rowing have contributed £400 towards the total cost, equating to £2,100 per athlete, and each athlete has been left to fund the remainder of their trip.

“The World University Rowing champs are a huge stepping stone event for young senior rowers who are trying to break into the senior Great Britain team training for the Olympic Games,” she said.

“As part of my trialling development, in which I am currently competing against one other cox for the Olympic seat, I am excited and ready to take up this international racing opportunity.

“However if I cannot raise the funds, sadly I will not be able to go.”

The Ross-on-Wye club have set up a fundraising page at mydonate.bt.com/events/morgansfund and have raised 60 per cent of the £1,700 target.
