Weʼre raising £2,000 to help fund more equipment for Newquay Surf Life Saving Club
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This summer I'm going to be board and ski (kayak) paddling the coast of Cornwall starting from north Cornwall/Devon border round to Plymouth in an effort to raise money for Newquay Surf Life Saving club. The money raised by this paddle will hopefully be enough to buy a new surf ski and paddle for the club so that we can have more of our members getting out on the water. Any funds over this amount will be used on repairs of kit that needs repairing throughout the season.
I'm aiming to do between 10 to 30km each day either solo but ideally with as many other people as possible. Any donations would be hugely appreciated as a lack of kit is one of the biggest limiting factors for people in our surf club to be learning to ski paddle.
With the majority of the senior members volunteering their time to help younger up and coming members having a ski for them to train on is a great opportunity for them to be able to get something more back from the club, along with fitter lifeguards being faster lifeguards!
