OWEN Trust water safety programme set up in memory of Owen Jenkins

Owen Jenkins drowned in the River Trent while trying to save his friends.

The mother of Owen Jenkins who drowned in the River Trent in Nottingham last July has revealed the winning design chosen for the logo of the OWEN Trust water safety programme.

The 12-year-old from Beeston died trying to rescue two girls who were struggling in strong currents.

His family have now set up the OWEN (Open Water Education Network) Trust in his memory to teach young people about the dangers of waterways and how to save people from drowning.
