Paralympian Naomi Riches was joined by 30 Great Marlow School Boat Club (GMSBC) rowers as she continued her world record attempt on Sunday.

Riches, who won gold at London 2012 and bronze at Beijing 2008, rowed from Marlow to Cookham Dean and is trying to become the fastest woman to row the length of the River Thames.

The 33-year-old is raising funds for charity IN-vision, which she is a patron of, and GMSBC head coach, Fergus Murison, was delighted the club were able to help the cause.

He said: “Great Marlow School Boat Club are extremely proud to be part of such an important event and to support Naomi in her record breaking quest.

“We wish the charity every success and hope everyone gets behind Naomi to help her to reach the target sum she has worked so hard for.”

Having been a beneficiary of the charity, GMSBC member Harry Weaver-Poole has first-hand experience of the support IN-vision can provide athletes with.

Weaver-Poole suffers from Ocular Albinism and Nystagmus and says Riches’ achievements provide motivation for his own sporting goals.

He said: “IN-vision has helped me so much with my eyes and I’m really happy to be part of the charity event to raise money and awareness.

“I love rowing and Noami Riches is a real life inspiration.”

GMSBC’s rowers have been helping to contribute to the charity and the club hopes to raise £1,000.
