June 2010: John Green has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours. John founded the Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust back in 1997. Since then the trust has gone from strength to strength and has allowed thousands of youngsters to learn to row and sail.
A big thank you to everyone who took the trouble to vote for HRCST’s entry in the Aviva Community Fund competition last year. We applied for £25,000 to build a floating classroom and we managed to get 4,198 votes. We didn’t win but we gained a huge amount of positive publicity from this national, high profile competition and we plan to try again next time!
