Donate to BUBC

We are always delighted to receive donations from our club alumni, which in the 2018/19 year, was enough to purchase a new Hudson racing double/pair, which has already won a medal at BUCS Regatta, competed on the Saturday of Henley Royal Regatta, and been to GB Trials. 

If you would like to make a donation, please do so through the University of Bath alumni page, and when asked where to direct your donation, specify other, and insert "Bath University Boat Club".

If you have recently made a donation, we are very grateful!
