Help TriSwim buy kayaks for DofE Award

Funding to help us provide kayaks to local Sea Cadets and Scouts for DofE Award training.

 TriSwim is launching 4 lakes across the South East in which to provide a safe, clean and controlled environment for open water swimming and lake based activities. 

We provide coaching and instruction to junior, beginner, nervous and elite swimmers and triathletes, as well as organise Open water races, Aquathlons and sprint triathlons. 

We have teamed up with our local Sea Cadets and Scout groups to help them provide a training ground for their youngsters who are aiming to take their Duke of Edinburgh Awards, and who wish to obtain professional qualifications in open water swimming, lifesaving and kayaking. Skills which these young adults can use to obtain paid work and university placements. 

In order to help them obtain these life skills, we need a little help in buying the kayaks for them to train in, and to provide safety on the lakes whilst they train. 

 **TriSwim does not charge the Sea Cadets or the Scouts to use the waters or kayaks for training purposes. These 5 kayaks are for the sole use of training towards junior qualifications and awards by the Sea Cadets and Scouts. Kayaks used by TriSwim for the commercial use of providing safety response to open water swimmers are provided for by TriSwim and are branded in TriSwim logos to differentiate between life responders, and recreational use. 

Thank you in advance to everyone who has taken the time to read, and donate.
