Derbyshire paddlers on top of the game
Interviewing Donna recently in a local hostelry, I was pleased to learn that training diets did not discount a glass of real ale or two. Donna informed me that she has canoed from the age of 12 and continued to canoe with Swansea University then passing on the passion for paddling to her children who have also gone on to take trophies in the sport.
Donna was keen to share with sportsshots that her son Stephen has just announced his selection for the GB Junior R6 Raft Team. The team train at Nottingham’s Holme Pier Point prior to visiting the world championships in Costa Rica in October this year hopefully returning with a medal. The team are currently seeking sponsorship to help fund the trip. Any interested sponsors wishing to assist are asked to contact the team (details below).
Stephen will be paddling with the Square Rock Raft Race Team and can be contacted via the link.
