Stratford Boat Club's Mark Dewdney scoops British Rowing's Lifetime Achievement Award for the West Midlands
STRATFORD Boat Club’s head adaptive coach Mark Dewdney has been handed the Lifetime Achievement Award for the West Midlands by British Rowing.
Dewdney wil now go forward for the sport’s governing body’s national award and this will be announced in a live webcast on Thursday, 20th January alongside the Medal of Honour, Medal of Merit, Beryl Crockford Award and National Safety Award winners.
Boat club president Paul Stanton said: “We are very proud of Mark and all that he has achieved, not only for the ever-increasing successful adaptive section, but for Stratford Boat Club as a whole.
“Mark’s considerable success in raising funds for the adaptive squad has had a trickle-down effect for the whole club, making more equipment available for juniors, seniors, masters, weekday rowers, Learn to Row and Junior Summer camp participants as well as the adaptive section.”
