.A note from Bruce Ross to our President, Sarah Cook is printed here :

"Would you please pass on to your members my sincere thanks for the Boat Club’s very generous contribution to the scholarships which are to be awarded in my name. I am very honoured by this but freely acknowledge that what has been achieved in sport at our University is very much the product of joint endeavour over many years. In particular, the tireless work of volunteers in our clubs has been critical in helping build a unique organisation across many different sports."
