Levy Real Estate has assembled a crack team of rowers to take on the mammoth Ahoy Oarsome Property Challenge on the Thames.

On June 19, a six-man team of Simon Higgins, Henry Leighton, Matt Paulson-Ellis, Jack Garrett, Thomas Birch and Aaron Moles will be rowing a 9.5 mile course from Westminster to Greenwich in aid of the Ahoy Centre – a charity which helps disadvantaged youngsters and disabled people build life skills through sailing and rowing.

Having watched Ben Hur a few times to improve their techniqe, the sextet are now training themselves into peak condition for the challenge.
