Support the Scots Guards Charity

Become a Sponsor

The Charitable Mission

It is our mission to raise  £150k for the Scots Guards charity   in order to support our serving members and veteran community.  The charity provides immediate, critical and often life-changing support to those in need and their families, serving or retired.

The Scots guards since 1642 have been involved in every major conflict the British Army has been engaged in.  Whaterver the reason for these conflicts, or their outcome, the residual effects for our serving soldiers are always the same: death and physical or mental injury.

The Iraq War and Afghanistan conflicts alone have led to the injury, illness or psychological harm of an estimated 75,000 British service personnel.  In the Afghanistan conflict, more than 630 British soldiers lost their lives. 

On top of this, there are an estimated 4.8 million veterans in the UK, around 22% of whom may have some form of mental disorder.

It is certain that these estimated figures will continue to rise; now more than ever our veterans need our support.

If you or your business would like to help us in our quest to raise money to support the ongoing needs of our military community and their families please consider the sponsorship options below.

The Boat

Atlantic Guardsman is a Rannoch-built R45, designed for trios, fours and five-man crews.  We are very much looking forward to some good ocean training with her!  The R45 is the most popular ocean rowing boat on the market, taking the Rannoch team over 2 years to design and build.

It has been built to be as user friendly as possible, but it is still the fastest four-person boat on the oceans, having broken nearly every record.

The boat will cost in excess of £76,000 to build and equip, and will be passed on to the next generation of tenacious ocean-goers once we have completed our quest.

Of course it is also an excellent carrier of logos and company branding; if you'd like to see your logo on our boat, please consider the options for becoming a Supporter.

The support of sponsors is essential to the success of Atlantic Guardsman. By working with the team, businesses will be able to benefit in the following ways:

  • Increased PR, brand exposure and outreach through a comprehensive communications plan which includes global media coverage, national and regional events and Scots Guards Social Media.

  • Brand perception through affiliation with the team's mission and inspirational sporting challenge.

  • Team endorsement of your products or services.  This can be through a variety of channels including content creation such as video footage on the row as well as mentions on our blog, website and social media to directly engage your target audience.

  • High quality media content.  The team will be available for press releases and will provide rights to all photos and video content from the row to sponsors.

  • Sponsors' staff are encouraged to share in the adventure and post race presentations can be arranged.

We have a wide  variety of sponsorship levels available.  If you are interested in any of these options, please use the contact form below.
