Please help us in our Sponsored Paddle from Porthcurno to The Isles of Scilly and support Surfers Against Sewage. The Ocean needs our help and as a team let's try and turn the tide on Plastic Pollution. See the story here https://vimeo.com/285082897
The team is made up of Mike Lacey, Sam & Will Boex, Ben Skinner, Adam Grifiths, Emily Currie, Jayce Robinson, Alan Stokes, Rich acey & Kelvin Batt who all share the same passion for the beaches and oceans and have an inner drive to stop the plastic pollution that's plaguing them.
Coming together were going to tackle this mammoth journey via paddle boards of which O'shea have kindly sponsored for the task, thank you! We hope to raise £5000 for Surfers Against Sewage so they may continue the fantastic work they do in campaigning and keeping our oceans and beaches clean.
Time wise were looking at late August/ September for the crossing, weather permitting, we will certainly need the tides and wind on our side! We will all be keeping our Instagram's and Facebook pages updated with all the progress we're making whether its posts from the actual journey or all the training sessions were doing to prepare ourselves for this monster task. Please follow us and share our adventure with your family and friends, we need your support and it is most appreciated, thank you.
Here are some crazy facts and figures to get your head around on why we need to act and act fast:
- 100 million marine animals die a year to our plastic contamination of the oceans.
- Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute.
- 50 percent of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away.
Nothing we use for 2 minutes should pollute the ocean for 500 YEARS!
