Local businesses unite and raise over £10,500 for Myocarditis UK
Blaser Mills Law set the fastest time at this year’s Jansons Rowing Cup and secured first place with a winning time of 1:21mins and followed one second behind by Ridge Consulting in the local competition on Wednesday, 14th June 2023 at Dorney Lake in Berkshire. The Jansons Rowing Cup started in 2016 with just a handful of boats crewed by a bunch of enthusiastic local business owners. Today, the sell-out event, has 90+ rowers working in law and architecture through to property and transport.
Andy Jansons, Managing Director of Jansons Property comments: “For the eighth year in a row this event has been a great success, bringing together the local business community to network and fundraise. This year all tickets sold out in advance, and I’m delighted to say that the money raised has gone to Myocarditis UK which reached a major fundraising milestone recently of £1,000.000. Thank you to everyone who attended and made it a fantastic event!”
With 13 teams of rowers taking part, only one could be crowned the winner. Blaser Mills Law declared victory with most improved team being Lewis & Partners.

Hiren Gandhi, Partner at Blaser Mills Law, comments; “We’ve been taking part in Jansons Property Rowing Cup for 5 years. After winning once before 4 years ago, we’re delighted to scoop the Jansons Cup again in 2023. Winning the Cup is a bonus as the main highlight for the team is being able to support Myocarditis UK, and their tireless efforts to raise money for the rare heart condition. Although we are now tired and drained, it has been well worth the effort.”
All funds raised on the day are donated to Myocarditis UK – a charity dedicated to researching the causes, prevention, and cures of this life-threatening heart condition.
