presented them with a donation from the Rotary Club - one of more
than 30 individuals, organisations and charities that the club
have supported this year.
Jane Sinnott of Brent Knoll Guides said: "We were delighted
to receive the donation and we will be putting it towards our
camp funds. We thank the Rotary Club for their support.
guides enjoyed their night on the river - the girls invited Hugh
to join them in a kayak, but he declined the offered and opted
to stay on dry land!"
Mike Merrett of CountryWide Weekends, which provides instructors
for the kayaking, added: "Brent Knoll Guides always enjoy
their outdoor activities, we have taken them raft building, climbing
and abseiling, but I think kayaking is probably their favourite.
It's a great activity and it gives them the opportunity to learn
teamwork, water confidence and balance."
