A huge congratulations to two iconic Cantabrians, Ken Sowden and Ben Lucas, who have just both been awarded Paralympics New Zealand Order of Merits.
They have been recognised for their many years of outstanding service to Paralympics New Zealand and Para sport, which includes being part of the Paralympic Games a combined 9 times.
Ben as a Paralympian in 1996 and 2000, then as the NZ team's Chef de Mission in 2016. Ken as a staff member for the NZ team on 5 occasions 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012, then as a representative for the International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (IWRF) in 2016.
Both Ken and Ben have been a cornerstone of ParaFed Canterbury over the past 20+ years and responsible for the organisation being what it is today.
