Aston Bond is delighted to announce that it is to provide sponsorship to Windsor Boys’ Boat Club this season. The funding provided will enable the Club to invest in better equipment so that the students can fulfill their true potential during the forthcoming regatta season, from the more local events to top-flight regattas such as Henley Royal Regatta. The Director of Rowing, Mark Wilkinson, was delighted with the news of the backing and said: “We are extremely grateful to all at Aston Bond for their support. The boys train extremely hard, and they and their parents have to raise funds to support the club.

With Aston Bond’s backing, the students will find it much easier to achieve their goals. Already the boys have laid down some significant markers with a couple of gold medals at the recent Junior Sculling Head and they will be aim-ing high this season.” Co-founder of Aston Bond and old boy of the school, Duncan Thomson, said: “Aston Bond are committed to helping young people succeed in achieving their aims and wish all at Windsor Boys’ School Boat Club our very best for the season”.

“Rowing is the school’s flagship sport which is incredibly rare for a state comprehensive school. Despite the school’s status it is blessed with a host of national champions, and international representatives as well as host of well qualified and dedicated coaches. All of the boys at the school are given the opportunity to row.” – http://www.twbs.co.uk/rowing/
