Oarsome Chance were happy to welcome Councillor Peter Edgar for a visit to our Maritime Workshop in Gosport. The executive member for education at Hampshire County Council, Peter Edgar has served for many years as a leader in the county council executive cabinet.

Councillor Edgar was impressed by the facilities and the opportunites for young people on our programmes, noting the "tremendous benefit for young people facing challenges in education".

We are extremely grateful to Councillor Edgar for awarding a grant for £1000 towards much needed resources for the Oarsome Chance programmes. We were also fourtunate to be awarded a similar grant by Councillor Malcom Carpenter, councillor for Battins Ward Leigh Park Havant, who also selected Oarsome Chance for an award.
