To celebrate the Boat Race and to help fundraise, the Grain and Hop Store is going head-to-head with rival pub, the Wig and Pen in Oxford, in the first annual Greene King Boat Race challenge, which started last Monday (March 28) and runs until this Sunday (April 3).

Each entry costs £2 and all profits will be donated directly to Macmillan Cancer Support. The rowers who manage to clock up the most kilometres will receive a £100 gift card for the Grain and Hop Store.

General manager at the Grain and Hop Store, Emmy Raimondi-Baker, said: “We are always keen to be involved in the community and its events. We believe this is such a great way to get everyone in the local area involved and raise money for a charity that is close to everyone’s heart. Alongside this, ensuring we beat our long-term rivals over in Oxford would be an added bonus!”
