Deben is Cambria’s Volunteer of the Year

Across on the ferry to Gravesend today for the Cambria Trust AGM,

Highlight of the event was the presentation to the Cambria dscf1151Volunteer of the Year. The Cambria Cup was presented by Tony Farnham, Cambria’s Honorary Ambassador, to Deben Johnson.

Deben is 17 and has volunteered with sb Cambria for two and a half years. He has sailed as Third Hand on the barge, and has also put his skills to good use on board. As a woodwork apprentice he has carried out considerable work on the barge boat as well as on the barge itself, including work on all the wooden blocks.

The Cambria Cup was won by Cambria in 1930 and subsequently passed into Tony’s ownership. He donated it to the Cambria Trust to be used in this way.

Sorry for the poor quality of the photo  –  I was not in a good position to take it, either that or the lens was very dirty!
