Cambridge law firm Mills & Reeve holds indoor charity rowing challenge
More than 100 rowers took part in an indoor charity challenge at the offices of Mills & Reeve.
The first Mills & Reeve Charity Rowing Challenge took place at Botanic House on Friday, May 10, with 29 teams taking part to raise money for homelessness charity, Cambridge Cyrenians.
Teams of up to four came from companies all over the city while rowers from Cambridge University’s victorious Boat Race crews paid a visit, setting the bar high in the challenge to see which team could row 2km the fastest.
Luminance was crowned the winner, followed by PwC and Deloitte in second and third place.
Jonathon Greenwood, partner at Mills & Reeve, said: “The Cyrenians are a great charity and we wanted to do something a bit different to raise money and awareness for them. Being in Cambridge – and having our own rowing teams – a rowing competition seemed just the thing!
"Nuffield Health, Cambridge provided their cutting-edge rowing machines and then joined us on the day to help participants stay in peak condition! The competitive atmosphere was fantastic and the event has raised a great sum for a very worthy cause.”
