Eastern Region British Rowing Volunteer of the Year Award

Posted In : Latest News

Great news at BRC this evening. Mike Perry, BRC President, has been awarded the Eastern Region British Rowing Volunteer of the Year Award.

Here is a snipet from the British Rowing website:


Mike Perry (Overall winner East Region)

'Mike is described as ‘doing pretty much everything’ for Bedford Rowing Club, its Sprint Regatta, Autumn and Spring Fours and small boat heads, as well as the Bedford Eights and Fours Head. He is an umpire for these events and others in the Region.  He runs the start marshalling team and is involved in all events from the planning to the prize-giving. If there is a job that needs doing Mike is generally found to be doing it– whether it be clearing the drains after a sewage leak, acting as Clerk of Works, or applying for grants. For many years he managed the Club’s bar and staff and as Club President he has faced immense challenges, but his tenacity and dedication means that Bedford has seen a steady influx of new rowers across all categories of the sport; racing, recreational and adaptive. Mike never seeks recognition for himself but his contribution to the club has been unparalleled - without him Bedford Rowing Club would not be the success story it is today.'









Well done to Mike who has been tirelessy working for the club for many years.
