Charity Involvement
Giving something back

The charity element of The EMC Silicon Cup is incredibly important and is the main reason the event came into existence. Every year participating companies help to raise thousands of pounds for three very different, but incredibly worthwhile causes.

The event spans two days to help raise as much money as possible for the three chosen charities. Alongside the entry fees and social ticket sales other fundraising activities take place over the two days including fun games, and auctions. We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the generous donors, participants and sponsors that have made this possible.

If you would like to help increase the total money raised by contributing something for the auction please contact us.

By participating in the regatta, you can really help to put something back.
