Basingstoke Canal Challenge – The Results

The Basingstoke Canal challenge is to paddle 2, 6 or 8 miles in a canoe or kayak on the Basingstoke canal. In addition to this, there is the opportunity to gain sponsors in order to provide funds for our chosen charity Accessible Boating, and since 1998 we have raised a total of £10,026.41.


Last year we raised a total of £860.59, and the Accessible Boating trophy was won by Cub Scout Alfie from the 3rd Bramshill Scouts, who raised a magnificent total of £178.50.
