A ‘Heavyweight’ Hughes Boat

Richard was a great sports fan, supporting and participating in many sports. He particularly relished the chance to support the Hughes Hall Boat Club, watching them climb up the bumps divisions’ year on year. Richard had already started a campaign for a men’s boat and we would like to complete Richard’s work and the fund rasising for a Hughes boat in his honour. Any surplus funds will go towards the Hughes Hall Boat Club.


Sponsor a seat for £1000 (or £83.33 a month for 12 months)

There are 9 seats available for sponsor (including the cox). Sponsoring a seat, of which 2 are already received, will go a long way in helping us achieve our target and get the boat into the water.

Donors who give over £1000 towards the boat, whether in a single donation or in weekly, monthly or annual instalments will also be invited along with a guest to the 2018 Boat Club dinner.

Smaller gifts and sharing

There is also the option of sharing your seat with fellow team members by giving as a group.

All other donations will be gratefully received, and recognised on a plaque in the College.

Your donation for the boat will be doubled pound for pound. To inspire your generosity, Fellow and alumnus William Charnley has kindly offered to match (up to £10,000) any donation we receive for the boat.


If possible please do complete the section on Gift Aid which will increase the amount received.
