A team from Boundless Networks is in training for St Gemma’s Hospice Windermere Row later this year; hoping to be ‘ultrafast’ and raise funds for the Leeds-based charity that provides expert care and support for local people with terminal illnesses.

“OK, we know we will struggle for anything like ultrafast or superfast speeds in our boat on Lake Windermere, but we will all try our best and aim to raise as much money as possible to allow this deserving charity to continue providing outstanding patient care,” said Boundless Networks Director Simon Hayhurst.

The team of six novice rowers from Boundless Networks, which is one of the first companies in the UK to test and deliver ultrafast wireless broadband in the most sparsely populated areas of North Yorkshire, will take part in the event on Sunday July 2nd.  The team is already training and is travelling to Lake Windermere in April for a practice row.

The Windermere Row takes place July 1st – 2nd this year and is billed as one of the toughest but most enjoyable St Gemma’s Hospice challenges.  The event has raised over £1.13 million since 1998.  Teams of varying sizes and abilities take to the lake come rain or shine and race their way past the checkpoints and along either the 10 or 21-mile route to victory.  Surrounded by the most beautiful setting, and with fancy dress and playful camaraderie strongly encouraged, this event has been attracting veteran captains and novice first mates to the lake for over 35 years.

The team from Boundless Networks is Director Simon, Senior Engineer Phil Teale, Engineer Mason O’Connor, Network Engineer Jack Preston, Engineer Tom Hayhurst and Business Account Manager Samuel Hayhurst.
