If you happened to be by the Thames this weekend you might have caught a glimpse of our very own Collections Care Manager Sharon Robinson competing in the Great River Race.

Sharon’s crew was a coxed four rowing a traditional Clayton Skiff. They were defending the title of Fasted Mixed Skiff for the fourth year running and won their class with a personal best of 2 hours 57 minutes and 51 seconds over a grueling 22 mile course from Docklands to Richmond.

The crew were racing to raise money in memory of friend and colleague Tanya Pollard for Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. You can find out more and support them here.
