Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page charity fundraising page for The Wave Project. I really appreciate it.
This summer I will be stand up paddleboarding 162 miles along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and Aire & Calder Navigation. This is about as close to Coast to Coast as you can get! The route is the Desmond Family Canoe Trail.
I have huge respect and love for The Wave Project and the work they do to help young people build confidence and self belief through proven, award winning surf therapy programmes. They were the first surf therapy programme to be funded by a governmental health service.
I am someone who easily gets anxious and have always been a worrier. I know how being in the sea, wild swimming, bodyboarding or paddleboarding, really helps me find joy and a sense of calm. If I can help raise money to help young people build their self belief, confidence and friendship groups through such amazing surf therapy programmes, then every mile paddled will be absolutely worth it.
I am also Crowdfunding on a different page for the 2 Minute Beach Clean Community, a not for profit organisation that encourages us to take just 2 minutes each day to pick up litter wherever we are - on the beach, street, park or for me, the canals!
Thank you so much!
