The Mount Batten Centre Charity Trust officially launched their “Recycle for Rewards” programme and put their new Specialist Canoe - the Bell-boat, out on session for its maiden voyage on Friday 14th October.
The Centre’s “Recycle for Rewards” programme enables schools, youth groups and community organisations to access subsidised or in some instances free activities at the centre by recycling clothes, or as we like to say “your old clothes for the great outdoors!”. Woodlands Special School partially funded an action-packed day at the centre with Powerboating, Sailing and Bell-Boating by collecting this huge pile of clothes. Johnny Mercer, Plymouth MP for Moor View, appeared suitably impressed with the Recycling programme referring to it as a "Brilliant scheme".
Johnny met with pupils from Woodlands Special School and talked through current provision for disability sport within Plymouth, before helping to launch the centre’s new specialist canoe. Earlier in 2016 the centre successfully Crowdfunded over £4,000 for a Bell-boat. The Bell-boat is ideally suited for introducing canoeing to children with Special Educational Needs as it won’t capsize and is extremely stable. Then Bell-boat was very well received by Woodlands Staff and Students – “This has been the best day ever, we want a Bell-boat and a Powerboat in school!”
