CanRow Initiative

Mallory Franklin, Silver Medal winner at the 2012 European Championships.

I'm really lucky to have become involved with creating a video for the CanRow Initiative in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire; not only that, but as a keen canoeist myself, I get to work with amazing and inspiring people like Mallory Franklin (TeamGB women's C1 slalom canoeist and silver medal winner at the European Championships).

The initiative has been set up to promote paddlesports, particularly rowing and canoeing, in the counties of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, and I've been working closely with Longridge Activity Centre to start the filming - huge thanks to both Tom and Amanda for their time so far. Thanks too to Mallory, who has taken time out of her busy schedule to support the initiative and be photographed and videoed!

Unfortunately, we were supposed to continue filming at the start of December but due to the adverse weather and flooding (oh, the irony!) we had to postpone it. Still, we plan to continue filming at the start of 2013.
