Oceans Project charity Founder, Sarah Weldon from Henley, talks about her forthcoming solo row around Great Britain at the next Ladies Who Impress event on Wednesday, 29 January 2014 at the Westminster Hub in London.
Sarah will join Helena Morrissey, CEO of Newton Investments, Labour Party Politician, Chi Onwurah, and Comedian, Jen Brister at the all-female event which is aptly entitled ‘Maybe I’m Crazy But…’ and celebrates those who dream big and embark on the most audacious of missions.
Sarah, who will be interviewed by Ladies Who Impress founder, Jana Bakunina, is attempting a 2,000 mile unassisted row around Great Britain on 28 May 2014. During the 12-week journey she will face some of the busiest shipping lanes, fastest tides and most unpredictable weather in the world. What’s even more impressive is that she has never rowed before!
If successful, not only will she bag herself a Guinness World Record, but she will also be raising funds for her own charity Oceans Project and the Thai Children’s Trust. Monies raised will provide tablet computers and Internet access to young people in developing countries.
Sarah will be talking more about the row, her passion to provide better education for young people, her rigorous training regime and what it will mean to her to gain that World Record title. Sarah is setting off from Henley on 28 May.
Jana Bakunina founded Ladies Who Impress in 2012 to celebrate female role models and inspire other women to be more confident, creative and make the most of their talents.
