WASUP Worcester Launch
WASUP was launched in the wonderful town of Worcester in February, with the event being brilliantly organised by Diana Crabtree alongside Isobel Lines, Bashir Ahmed and Abdul Rashid Gatrad.
Kings Hawford and St Barnabs CE Primary school took part in the event, showing brilliant engagement and motivation throughout participating in all the different activities.
Andy Train (Former Olympian) kindly allowed the university of Worcester students and WASUP team to physically clean the canal using his wonderful bell boats.
The event was a major success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
