Debbie meets Royalty

Our very own Deborah Hunt went to Buckingham Palace today to receive an award from HRH Prince Michael of Kent and then to a reception afterwards.

The Queen and Prince Michael of Kent hosted the reception to celebrate 125 years of the Royal Life Saving Society.

The Royal Life Saving Society and its member branches teach valuable life-saving skills and educate communities across 27 Commonwealth countries on drowning prevention.

Did you know when The Queen was 13, she too, achieved her Royal Life Saving Medal?

Canterbury Duck Race 2016

The Canterbury Duck Race is back for 2016!

The ducks are all fully rested after a hugely successful race last year the 3,500 ducks will once again be taking to the water. Each duck can be sponsored for just £1 with prizes for the first 3 ducks to cross the line.

The event, hosted by Canterbury Rotary Club, will be held on 18th September. The ducks will be let loose at 11am and wind their way along the quarter mile stretch of the River Stour towards the finish line at the Westgate Towers.

For more information and updates head over to the Duck Race Facebook page and don’t forget to add the date in your diary.

30 Miles in 30 Days

On Wednesday the club were proud to host mile 27 of “30 miles in 30 days”. This challenge is being completed by two amazing ladies; Paige Thomas who came up with this wonderful idea to raise money for RLSS UK and her mum Donna Thomas.  Members of the club enthusiastically joined them to give support including 3 parents. Rachel, Monty, Danny and Phoebe completed the mile and Clara, Fatima and Ffion successfully swam a very respectable half mile.  Thank you all for your donations, Paige and Donna are aiming to generate as much awareness as possible of the Save a Baby’s Life Programme and raise lots of money to buy the much needed equipment to run the free courses.
