Story

We have set our target at 1 penny for every ten sheep in Wales, so with an estimated 11,978,590 sheep that's a target of £11,979 and once its raised we will set a date and risk all in a mad paddle to Calais in The Poo Canoe, made from Sheep Poo PaperTM.  And we're not recounting the sheep, it keeps making us fall asleep . . .You can see the BBC Story on the first water trials here http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/north_west/8149269.stm

Or the Reuters piece here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIeXn1oDfVo

And finally, the latest vid of the successful 9-10 mile run out on Llyn Tegid/Lake Bala here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slIjJEnbKJU

We have yet to ask the port authorities in France for permission to dock a 5.5meter floating poo, but are sure there will be more than one "Sacre Bleu!" . . .

We are supporting the Wales Air Ambulance because all year they set out to help people who are proverbially 'up poo creek without a paddle' . . .

Any sponsors wishing to help with the cost of the pilot boat can contact us directly at www.SheepPooPaper.com
