The Provincial Prior’s challenge for this year was for members of the Body Guard to canoe round the Four Counties Ring of canals. The money raised will go to the British Heart Foundation.
I am very pleased to announce this they did successfully over the last weekend 16th – 17th April. The six who paddled the canoes were ably supported by the rest of Body Guard members who were just as important to ensure the success of the challenge, all playing an essential part, a great team effort for which they must all be justly proud.
A very small number of knights of the Province turned out to support the event and cheer them on their way, with most of the senior members of KT, Craft and Chapter supporting.
The total raised was in excess of £7,000, which was presented to the British Heart Foundation.
Two years ago the Coast to Coast Bicycle ride raised over £10,000.
