Our alumni are essential in keeping the club going; with generous donations, visits to coach, imparting their wisdom, and membership to our alumni club – Castrum. Members remain an important part of the LUBC community long after they graduate. This club is a family – the continued return of alumni members year on year to our Alumni events and to support us at races is a testament to that! Our Alumni Relations Officer Julia asked our past members what LUBC gave them. See some of their responses below!
Our Alumni Community
LUBC gave me the best of friends I could ever ask for, and the biggest sense of pride when winning a home Roses in my final year (even if it did result in a dip in the Lune!)Amelia Robinson Cox 2015-2018, Novice Women's Captain 2017-2018
A wife, two best men, a cycle across Spain and a love for the sport which sees me plying the trade down in Dorset, as well as a record (attempt!) row around GB.Nigel Charles
LUBC turned me from a stroppy teenager into someone with responsibility, who could finally use my stubbornness for something positive. I got a couple of slipped disks, a world record, and a fiance. LUBC will forever hold a special place in my heart.Hannah PennSenior Women's Captain 2018-2019
I was studying abroad and was lucky enough to end up at Lancaster. The friends I made are friends for life and the memories are some of my best ever. I'm glad to see how the club has grown - even the kit is better!Mark Anthony
Being Women's Captain in my third year and Club Captain in my Masters year definitely helped me career-wise! I met my husband at LUBC in my third year and we now have an 18 month old daughter and another baby due at the end of May. Friends I have kept in touch with from uni are all from LUBC!Alice Lees 2009-2013
