Sponsorship news:


Bank of Scotland Marine Finance has become a silver sponsor of Robert Prentice and Colin Briggs who are currently competing in the Woodvale Atlantic Rowing Race that started in La Gomera at the end of November.

“Robert is a valued and loyal customer of ours – we would therefore like to offer our support in this way and wish them good luck with this mammoth undertaking,” says Peter Whitehead, Director of Bank of Scotland Marine Finance.

Both Robert – MD of leading River boat operator on the Thames – and Colin – a London taxi driver – are both extremely experienced rowers with winning titles behind their names. Their aim is not only to achieve their personal best, but also to raise money for Move Ahead, a charity for the brain injured and their carers.

Colin is the oldest person participating in the race this year being sixty years old. The team hopes to cross the Atlantic and reach the finish in Antigua within 60 or 70 days.

“The team at Bank of Scotland Marine Finance has the highest regard for these two courageous men and are following their progress closely,” says Peter.
