Kate Carries Olympic Torch

While I was busy creating our Twitter account, Facebook page and new blog the NCBA was marching on regardless, creating news all over the country. So although it’s nearly old news I’d like to share a few recent stories of members that we are proud of.
Kate Hincks is a new Director of NCBA but has been an active community boat organisation member for over 10yrs.  She was nominated to be an
Olympic torch bearer in Gloucestershire and carried the flame through Royal Wooton Bassett on 23rd May.
Kate HincksKate’s nomination story

Kate has used a wheelchair for many years due to ongoing medical conditions including deafness, however she has not given in, getting her degree and master of law at Cheltenham(UofG) although it has taken her 8 years to do so, after being told by many people she would not be able to do anything. Kate is an active member of the law society section for solicitors with disabilities as well as being active within the local community including volunteering with DART (disabled afloat riverboat Trust) helping to organise trips for disabled people and their carers. Kate leads an active life and I believe after overcoming several drawbacks is an inspiration to those with disabilites that they can go on to lead active and exciting lives.
