Michelmores supports Row for the Ocean – campaigning for plastic free coastlines

The Firm hosted an event on 25 January in partnership with 'Row for the Ocean' – raising awareness of their voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to campaign for a plastic free Exeter.

The Exeter-based rowers, Ros, Kirsty and Kate (collectively Row for the Ocean), will row unaided for over 3,000 miles across the unforgiving Atlantic Ocean in December 2018, in order to raise awareness of the growing ocean plastics crisis. The Firm is proud to be an Affiliate Partner of the team.

Michelmores helped the crew to row a distance equivalent to the first 1% (30miles) of their voyage, inviting staff, clients and contacts to compete in a team-relay indoor rowing challenge at the Firm's Exeter office.

Kirsty Barker, member of Row for the Ocean said:

"It was great to see everyone getting so stuck in, and we were super impressed by everyone’s performance. We definitely saw that the rumours were true – Michelmores are a sporty lot! As such a prominent local company, we’re proud to carry the Michelmores logo across the Atlantic."
