Charlotte is my granddaugter and a keen canoeist. She trains 5/6 times a week and also races most weekends throughout the country. She regularly helps the youngsters and is also on the committee representing the juniors. She is popular with young and old alike. She has reached quite a high standard and has had training with the UK Development Squad. Last year she coped very well when her mother was ill for 12 months and had to have 3 major operations. Charlotte looked after her mother and the house whilst also studying for her GCSE's and continuing with her training. Also, at the same time, her father left to live in Australia without them and I am extremely proud of how she coped during these crises. Her aim is to participate in the 2016 Olympics and I am sure she will succeed.
