Joe Way Paddle for life and Sunset Music sessions

We want to ensure that we can hold our annual charity paddle and music event and reach the £125,000.00 target

We did it!

On 2nd Jul 2014 we successfully raised £1,078 of £1,000 target with 18 supporters in 56 days

We need this £1000.00 to ensure our annual charity paddle and music event which is free to watch can happen this June and that we hit our target of £125k this year.

We need to buy Event Insurance, paddler wrist bands and trophies with the remainder of the money going into the charity pot. We already have £4000.00 worth of donated safety cover, equipment, food, PA, support staff, prizes and bands so the event is almost run at ZERO cost with all the money raised on the day going to charity.

The money we raise is given out to various charities and good causes including Childrens Hospice Southwest, CLIC, Air Ambulance, Cancer research, RNLI and The Wave Project to name just a few, to see where the money will go and what we have already donated CLICK HERE
