Staying Afloat
We did it
On 30th June 2020 we successfully raised £2,260 ( + est. £266.25 Gift Aid ) with 61 supporters in 48 days

We want to re-open as soon as possible, however we need extra funds as we have no income at the present time.

Great facility for the local area, has enabled lots of young people over the years to take part in loads of adventurous projects.

My son and extended family have had the opportunity to use the fantastic facilities for many years. I do hope that this continues for many more youngsters to enjoy. Great trainers and leaders

I loved kayaking here last year & was amazed how few people used the base. Hope that you can open again soon. It would be a major loss to the area if you had to close.

Love all the great work your team have done over the years, so hopefully the target still be met 🤗

Great facility. Please hold on! The open water swimming here is exceptional. As an employer in Cheshunt, I’m surprised by how many local people & commuters are not aware of what’s on offer here. With the residential redevelopment of Delamare road (Cheshunt Lakeside), the train station, & proximity to Lee Valley Regional Park the long term potential is there.

Some of my happiest memories were spent watching my children at the paddlesports after school club. I could not believe there was such a beautiful spot right on my doorstep and that I could afford to give my kids such a great experience when there was very little we could afford. I want other families to experience this, and would love to bring some of the children from the school where I work. Good luck with contributions!!! 🙏

Happy to donate to a great organisation that enables everyone to enjoy the outdoors, develop skills and build friendships. Hope you are all keeping well and are able to open soon.

This is a very worthwhile cause, which gives great pleasure to many young people with varying abilities. It is all staffed by volunteers who give up their weekends to pass on their skills which will enrich lives for many years to come. Pkease support this cause.
