New kayaking equipment purchased with fabulous grant

Penistone Scouts’ recently received a grant from Blackstone Edge Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund to purchase a trailer, kayaks and all of the fantastic accessories/equipment. Yesterday, some of our leaders, with four of the group’s young people, unpacked the delivery at Hesley Wood Scout Activity Centre.

The equipment is brilliant and will provide many opportunities for young people. We’ve six kayaks for young people and two instructor kayaks. There are wetsuits, wind jackets, buoyancy aids, paddles, spraydecks, helmets and on top of this a sign-written trailer.

We are delighted to have been able to purchase this equipment, and look forward to many trips out both close to home and whilst we’re away on trips too. A massive thank you to Blackstone Edge Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund for the grant – so very much appreciated!

Check out some of the photos we captured during our unpacking and taster session trialling the equipment.
