Canoe Trip ~ Sunday June 19th 2011

On Sunday June 19th 2011 a group of 12 Bangor University staff and family members set out to paddle for 2 hours from the Conway Centre at Plas Newydd to Bangor Pier, raising money from sponsorship for the Ty Gobaith childrens hospice in Conwy.

We are very grateful for the support for the canoe event that was given Sally Ward, a member of the Conway Centre staff who lead the event and looked after our health and safety. Tim Jepson, an experienced canoeist and senior education lecturer joined us and worked in partnership with Sally to supervise the event.

Thanks are also extended to ‘Posturite’ who generously funded the hire of canoes, our safety protective clothing and transport back to the Conway Centre from Bangor Pier.
