Story

In early July 2018 I will be paddle boarding the non tidal part of the River Thames from Cricklade to Teddington Lock. My wife will be joining me on her own board and raising money for her own chosen charity.

We’ll start our journey at the head  of the Thames River and walk the first few unnavigable miles to Cricklade where we can finally get on our boards. After that it’s a 139 mile paddle down-river portaging 45 locks and paddling up to 30 miles a day. We’re expecting some blistered hands and very sore legs! 

We will be paddling with charity donation buckets and bothering any passing members of the public for donations too!  So if you see us please don’t run away. 

AGE UK provide invaluable support for thousands of people every year. Their services give deserving people advice, enable their independence and most importantly for me - combat loneliness which is something i’m sure we can all agree is a horrible and shameful by-product of our modern society. These people need our help as much as anyone and none of us should forget that we might need AGE UK’s help ourselves in the future. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
