CCF Get New Boat thanks to OD Generosity

28 June 2018

CCF Get New Boat thanks to OD Generosity Pupils involved with the CCF received a boost this week thanks to the generosity of an Old Dunelmian. Chris Buffy OD (P,1963-67) has donated a new Laser sailing boat to the Navy Section. The boat, named Chris GB, was unveiled on Masters’ Green during CCF activities on Thursday evening.

No stranger to water, Chris was a keen member of the CCF Canoe Section during his time at School and he was delighted to be able to help. Chris swapped stories with cadets about “arduous training” in the mountains of Glen Coe and shared reminiscences about his CCF Trip to a British base in Berlin.

Head of the Navy Section, Lt Tom Williams, said, “It is great to have the support of Mr Buffey and of the OD Community. CCF is not just about the valuable skills learned but the many memories and friendships made. Thanks to Chris’s generosity we will see more pupils out on the water in the coming years.”
