TWO former members of the Pathfinders Youth Canoe Club in Abingdon will be taking part in one of the sport’s toughest races next Sunday.
Chyavan Rees, from East Hendred, near Wantage, will be heading to the Scottish Highlands alongside Thomas Leonard, from Aston, near Witney for the Moriston River race.
Rees said: “I think the club deserve huge recognition for two of their former students competing against the best kayakers in the UK.”
