For the past seven years, H Cox and Son has provided a kayak and paddle for a participating youth
that has worked on the early June BRCS project at which we clean the entire length of the river.

The BRCS wishes to thank the H Cox and Son Company for their sponsorship of this prize.
It fosters involvement, participation and river stewardship of our youth in this worthy project.
