CBRE Bristol Helps Raise Over £12,000 In Charity Rowing Challenge


Rowers at CBRE Bristol raced against teams from across the UK to cover 50km in the quickest time possible in aid of charity partner, Action for Children.

The company’s annual #Row50 challenge took place on Friday 9th November, when two teams of rowers at CBRE Bristol competed against each other – and 32 teams at other CBRE offices around the country – to raise funds for the cause, using rowing machines supplied by Clifton’s Nuffield Health. Together, CBRE’s teams raised £12,559.59, which is a UK record for the #Row50 challenge.

The winning team, Jake’s Warriors, covered the distance in 3 hours 9 minutes and 30 seconds – the fastest ever time for a CBRE Bristol #Row50 team.

Action for Children was nominated as CBRE’s national charity partner earlier this year and helps disadvantaged children across the UK through intervening early to stop neglect and abuse, fostering and adoption, supporting disabled children, and by campaigning to make life better for children and families. CBRE has made a two-year pledge to raise enough funds to help Action for Children provide specialist support to 700 children and young people in care.

“Rowing this distance in such a short time was tough for us all, but thanks to some great teamwork and support from our colleagues, we’re proud to have done our bit to raise funds for this very important cause,”

said Tom Morris, CBRE Bristol Managing Director.
