Story

Hi all.....I know it’s late in the day for starting fundraising but hey...every little helps! I am swimming 2 miles in the Swim Serpentine event in Hyde Park on 22nd of September and have decided to try and raise some money for The Wetwheels Foundation....Please take a few minutes to read this......

We were at a Charity dinner last week raising funds for Wetwheels.  


The after dinner speech was made by Geoff Holt. 

Geoff Holt MBE was a professional yachtsman with many ocean crossings under his belt until he was paralysed in a swimming accident in 1984. Today he commits much of his life to championing disability awareness and engaging others in the training and development of the disabled and able-bodied to help them attain their full potential whether in sporting or other endeavours and to inspire everyone he touches to recognise and harness those innate qualities in themselves.

Feel free to read more about this wonderful cause and if you can spare a few pounds I’d greatly appreciate it. 

Thank you x

Wetwheels was founded with a guiding principle to provide access to the sea for all disabled people at the best possible value for money and in a manner that is open to all.At the core of our organisation are our boats and our people who deliver our activities. Our people are a mix of paid staff and volunteers. All undergo Disability Awareness Training in a Maritime Context. We have developed this bespoke training from the learning of our activities and the experience of our team.
