The Bruce Trust - Barge Trip
BradleyAgain this year we took some of our club members away for a fantastic day trip on the Kennet & Avon Canal organised by our friends at Phoenix Rotary Club, The trip is on the Bruce Trust flagship barge, the Rebecca which can carry up to 10 passengers plus the crew.

Rebecca is crewed by a trained team from the Rotary Club who encourage everyone to take an active role in our day, everyone will be operating locks, throwing and tying off ropes and steering the barge, even our youngest members get to operate the locks and steer! The barge is 18m long and over 3m wide and weighs in at about 20 tons so is a lot to handle.This year's event was a great success and we look forward to repeating it next year.

RosieChequeA very special event
Took place this year Rosie one of our fantastic members on the spur of the moment decided it would be a great idea to raise awareness for the group in Swindon and a little moneyduring National Epilepsy week. Rosie’s idea was to take part in a head shave, to make the most of this great and brave idea our friends at the Phoenix, borrowed a vacant shop in the middle of the town centre on a lively Saturday and acquired the services of two top stylists form Goldsworthy’s hairdressers and a face painter for good measure.

The event was a great success and Rosie was flabbergasted with her publicity in the Swindon Advertiser and at the final sum raised a awesome £1247.25.
