For the third year running, Bishops Stortford Canoe Club held a Come-and-Try event on the river in the centre of town in aid of Grove Cottage.
A bit of confusion over race number on the day meant that Chris was not recognised as the fastest kayak until the the results were officially published later (see MLSC website). It wasn't really about the competition though. The organisers kept everybody safe and everyone had a marvellous time.
In total the event raised over £10K for the RNLI - the greatest total in the event's 39 year history. Stortford's Chris Sze raised a staggering £1360 single-handed and won the Panther "Crown" Cup for the biggest donation raised by an individual. Big well done Chris on this impressive achievement!
Ella's cakes on 1st November were very well received and Ella will be back at the club selling more next Sunday (8th). Please help support this good cause.
