Ouse Cruise is just the ticket for Kelvin

On a warm and sunny day in July, YorkBoat's Sales and Marketing manager, Kirsty Witham, presented Kelvin, Kelle, and their children Eve (8) and Lucas (4) with a family ticket for a YorkBoat cruise.

Kelle explained: “We don't get many knocks on the door. If I'm busy with the children I tend not to answer. Kelvin was home and went to see who it was. I'm so pleased that he did!”

Kelvin added: “I've never won a prize, but I cycle to work every day so I was happy to try a cycling challenge as a family outing with our two children”. For the i-Travel York Challenge, Kelvin signed up to bike into town and back from Clifton Moor with his wife and two children. Kelvin explained: “We found a safe route that would include a short stretch of road. One day the children will want to make their own way to and from school. We want to be able to feel confident that they'll know how to cope with the roads”. (Eve was listening intently. She looked thrilled and excited by this idea of being independent!)

Kelvin said: “The prize from YorkBoat is great as it's outdoors, and it's great to take the children out. Now we're looking forward to an evening of adventure on a floodlit cruise down the River Ouse.” Unexpected things can happen when i-Travel York knocks on your door!
