Two Wolfson students are participating in Row Britannia, a team 2,020-mile rowing challenge, to be completed between 12 November 2019 and 6 June 2020. They hope to raise £3,000 for Sport Relief and mental health.

“Coming off the cancellation of the Boat Race was hugely disappointing and not knowing when the next time I will be in a boat will be, it’s really good to have a goal to work towards,” said Sophie, who is studying an MPhil in management.

Tom Hewitt (PhD, History) says, "We're doing it as a team, as no one wants to row that far alone!"

Best of luck to Tom, Sophie, and the rest of the teams.
