Medics set for Thames row

A group from London will be rowing through Oxfordshire on a 140-mile journey down the Thames to raise money for a new ventilator for St George’s Hospital in Tooting.

The eight rowers from St George’s Hospital Boat Club are starting in Lechlade on Thursday and planning to row to Putney in five days.

Dean Ella, a third year medical student from St George’s Hospital, said: “Initially this was our idea of a crazy holiday. However, we soon realised we could use this to benefit the hospital which is training us.

“Our target is £10,000. So far we have raised £5,000 but we still see our target as very achievable.”
