The club is enormously grateful to the following funders for supporting our development as a club – as we grow in size, competitiveness, and ability to support paddlers at all levels and ambitions
Falcon is introducing kayaking to youngsters at local schools and to encourage them to participate in the sport. This project acknowledges the financial support it received from the Canoe Foundation.
OXFORDSHIRE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Falcon also acknowledges the financial support it received from the Oxfordshire Community Foundation.
In 2012, Falcon received a grant from Oxfordshire Community Foundationto help us buy six new beginner kayaks – much needed as our existing boats were over 20 years old. Following on from that, OCF also granted the club Comic Relief funding that allowed the club to purchase a fantastic set of new paddles.
OXFORD CITY COUNCIL
A grant from Oxford City Council has allowed three coaches – Doug Staff, Callum Staff, and Nick Barnett – to get their Level 2 coaching qualifications, and two others – Emma Sheppard and Isaac Staff – to get their Level 1 awards. To have this increase in the number and quality of coaches at the club is a big boost.
