Newcastle University Rowers fund raise for RALPHH

Students from Newcastle University boat club have become the first University to fund-raise on behalf of RALPHH.

Profits from the sale of the student union calendar produced in the last 12 months raised £146, which will be used nationally to fund RALPHH to achieve our aims. Chrissy Castledine took the lead on this initiative and we, at RALPHH are extremely grateful for her efforts.

Formally established just over a year ago, RALPHH takes it name from the late Robert Allen who died suddenly in his 30's, having achieved national junior success in rowing as a teenager.

Richard Allen, Chairman of RALPHH said: “We really appreciate the help and support shown by Newcastle University students and we are very hopeful that other schools and universities will now want to add their full support for such a worthwhile cause.”
