The fabulous Brightsides rowing team – who are planning to row across the Atlantic to raise funds for Get A-Head and Meningitis Now – have made headlines with an appearance on the BBC.
Skipper Rod Adlington and his crew were featured on Midlands Today – the regional news programme for the Midlands – talking about how they are gearing up for the big adventure in the new year.
The team – who will row 3,000 miles from Lanzarote to Antigua in January and hope to raise £250,000 – were filmed in action on Draycote Water near Rugby.
Get A-Head chair Tom Bromwich was also interviewed for the piece.
