The charity making life better by water

Rob Oliver, training for the Paralympics on his doorstep

Rob Oliver

Paracanoe athlete Rob Oliver rediscovered his local canal during the 2020 pandemic when he was unable to travel to the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham to train for Tokyo 2020.

At first, it was simply a convenient solution to keep him in the running for a place in the squad. But it didn't take long for Rob to appreciate the mental benefits of being close to water in a natural, ever-changing environment, or make the most of spending less time on the road and more with his family.
