Team Margot Rowers are back on the water!

Team Margot Rowers are back on the water!

After over 20 years doing shutters (and probably going through a mid-life crisis) I'll be rowing once again with Team Margot Rowers. This is certainly one of our biggest challenges yet as a team as we will be entering 2 boats in this years' Celtic Challenge - a 94 mile in 24 hours rowing race from Ireland to Wales.

Everyone here at Plantation Shutters thinks I'm trying to find myself but they are conscious and well-informed we're doing it for a much greater cause. This will be in memory of Margot Martini to raise ‪awareness‬ and funds for Team Margot Foundation & to highlight the need for more people to sign up to the ‪‎Bone Marrow Register‬.

You can help us complete this immense challenge by visiting our fundraising page and making a donation until April 30th - click here to make a donation.

If you are not happy donating, you can still help delete Blood Cancer by registering as a blood stem cell donor. It is very simple, visit the website below for more information.

Thank you, Rob James.

THANK YOU Rob ! And also to all at Plantation Shutters for your fantastic continued support. It is an honour and a privilege to row with you, Rob. I share your disappointment in not finishing the Celtic Challenge 2017, but also agree that it was absolutely the right thing for us to retire from the event. Only 4 of the 13 boats that started, actually finished ! We can all be rightly proud of what we have achieved - not least that we were one of the lead boats for over 16 hours. And also that our efforts are helping to save lives.

Yaser, Margot's father

Together, saving lives
