Anna Thornton is a student at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA. At the age of just 21, Anna has won five World Championship medals for Great Britain, competing at both junior and U23 level. She had a fantastic summer this season, making it back-to-back gold at the U23 World Championships and taking the Stonor Challenge Trophy at Henley Royal Regatta.
Sadly Anna suffered a traumatic injury to her brain on the 4th November over in the states. The support of her family and friends will be vital in her recovery, and she is due to return home to Nottingham for further treatment.
The huge contributions she has made to our sport are undeniable. This is our opportunity as a community to combine forces and help raise the funds needed to provide the advanced level of care and rehabilitation she needs.
Here at AllMarkOne, we want to help support her in any way that we can.
Every photo sale made for the foreseeable future will be donated to the Pulling for Anna campaign. This will be added to all money raised over the past few weeks after we initially discussed an intention to do this. This covers all galleries of photos on our store linked here, stretching back to Bedford Regatta 2018. We also have collections of photos no longer showing on our website - if there is any interest in these, let us know through the contact form on the site and we can look through our archives. Photos are only £5 for a digital download.
Similarly, 50% of calendar sales will also be donated to the campaign. Our calendars feature some of the standout crews from throughout this year at junior, university and senior level. Each month features a high-quality image taken by our team and lists the major dates of head races & regattas to make life that little bit easier for athletes and family alike.
We want to help however we can and use the platform that we've built for good. Every donation helps to give back to a talented young athlete who has given us and our sport so much.
