Carol said "On Wednesday 24th July Duddon Canoe club ran a session for a group of visually impaired adults. We were contacted by Claire Huddleston the vision support team officer from Barrow blind society. Conditions were good and 8 paddlers had a trip on the dock with support from 5 club coaches and 2 members on shore. The majority of the paddlers would like to come again and some have enquired about becoming members. Thanks to all who helped to make it a good experience."
Claire Huddleston kindly said "A special thank you from everyone at Barrow & Districts Society for the Blind for this afternoon. The understanding of local sports clubs allows for our clients to undertake new activities. Our members thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I think you may have some new members coming along on Friday which just highlights the dedication and understanding of your coaches"
