On 7th July 2014, two lucky Best Beginnings auction prize winners, Michael and Nicholas had a once-in-a-lifetime experience – a personal rowing tuition, tour and lunch with legendary British rowers, Sir Steve Redgrave and Steve Williams.

The clinic was held at the Leander Club in Henley-upon-Thames just after the world famous Henley Royal Regatta. It was a beautiful sunny day – perfect weather for rowing – and a wonderful experience for all involved. We are sure it will be a day that Nicholas and Michael will never forget!

A huge thank you from all at Best Beginnings to:


  • Sir Steve Redgrave and Steve Williams for generously donating their time in providing the clinic;
  • The Leander Club, Henley-upon-Thames for kindly donating the boats and facilities used during the clinic; and
  • One of our incredibly generous supporters who purchased this amazing prize during an auction at the Masters Tennis event in 2013
