Blackwell sponsors riverbank restoration project for the Aberdeen Kayak Club

The company recently donated £500 in support of the Aberdeen Kayak Club's project to restore eroded sections of the bank of the River Don.

Made famous as the place where Olympic Gold Medallist, Tim Baillie began his career in slalom canoeing, the riverbank used by the club in the west part of Seaton Park in Aberdeen requires reinstatement to reverse 1.5 metres of erosion. The corrosion of the riverbank has created significant health and safety concerns, having brought the adjacent footpath to within two or three inches of the water's edge.

As well as reinstating the riverbank, the club's £130,000 improvement plan includes landscaping, upgrading the footpath and various measures to make the site more accessible to the local community. These measures include installing a floating pontoon with a hoist to help disabled people in and out of boats and implementing access and safety measures to open the site to children and other vulnerable groups participating in Aberdeen Council's Adventure Aberdeen outdoor learning activities.

The Aberdeen Kayak Club is hoping to see the riverbank improvements completed by May 2016, in time for the club's annual slalom competition.
