Canoe Club splashes out on new gear


12th May 2016

Ulverston Canoe Club is splashing out on new equipment with help from a donation by Furness Building Society.

The club has received one of the 150 x £150 payments to charities and organisations across the North West to mark a landmark of 150 years since the Furness was founded to support local communities.

Ulverston Canoe Club aims to encourage more people to sample and enjoy the freedom and healthy exercise offered by canoeing, taking advantage of Cumbria’s fantastic watersports facilities.  Club founder Barry Curley explains: “There are lots of clubs for serious sports canoeists but nothing in the area for people who simply want to try canoeing safely and enjoy being on the water.  It’s something that whole families can enjoy together, and that family-friendly and all-inclusive ethos is at the heart of the club.”
