Runner up in British Canoeing Awards
Helen was recently recognised in the British Canoeing Virtual Awards, which celebrated the great spirit of the paddling community throughout the challenges of Covid-19. The awards recognised paddlers, clubs, coaches, leaders, volunteers or individuals who gave up their time and went the extra mile during Covid-19, making a significant difference to their community through their contribution.

Helen was one of only three athletes nominated and then shortlisted for an award in the Digital category, which was for the best paddling related digital piece, showcasing how the nominee continued to love and embrace paddling during the summer lockdown. A panel shortlisted Helen for her digital efforts to encourage people to try kayaking and stand up paddle boarding during the pandemic.

The winner was decided by a combination of a fifty percent public vote and fifty percent independent panel and was eight-year-old Olivia Moore, who participated in and helped to promote the World Back Yard Rolling Competition on Facebook. On being shortlisted Helen said, "It was a lovey surprise to be nominated and then shortlisted for this award but to be honest I am delighted that Olivia won, as it is great to see someone so young demonstrating their drive, passion and love for paddling and encouraging other youngsters to get on the water."
