On 27th April 2013, UBTV Sport met ‘Inspirational Friends’, Hannah Lawton and Jessie VanBeck, on the day of their boat’s naming ceremony. In December 2013, they are taking on the enormous challenge of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, in memory of their late friend Eleanor Ellis who died of cervical cancer last year. They are hoping to raise £100k for the charities, Myton Hospice and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, and aim to complete the crossing within 60 days and break the British record. We were also delighted to meet Katherine Grainger, who is supporting Inspirational Friends, and was leading the ceremony.
