New Canoes for 2021

Sawston Youth Group Canoe Club Photos - New Canoes for 2021

Through the support of the Cambridge Community Fund, Sawston Youth Group was able to buy sit on canoes, and a stand up paddle board.  The aim was to provide recreational and sporting opportunities, to young people after Covid 19.   Although the group has kayaks, it did not have any sit on boats which some young people prefer.  Through the grant we also bought a tandem sit on boat, which will be used to help those young people in the group, that are less able  or disabled to enable them to enjoy outdoor pursuits.   The grant has added a new dimension to the outdoor canoeing that the group offers, and will enable many more young people to benefit from being in the countryside after Covid.  Also the grant presents new opportunities for young people to learn new skills, and improve their canoeing ability.
