Four Doncaster men who rowed 31 miles on a Lincolnshire river raised almost £800 for cancer charity Aurora.

John Hutchinson, Ian Yates, Brian Oliphant and Rick Rolt completed the Boston Rowing Marathon in memory of their friend and fellow Doncaster Rowing Club member Denise Honey.

Despite severe weather conditions at the race in September, the team finished in four hours and 50 minutes.

Denise’s husband, Mike, said he was very proud of his late wife’s friends for supporting Aurora in her memory.
