We are a 24 hour search & rescue service to save lives at sea


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page for The RNLI. I want to give something back to the RNLI as the volunteers do a fantastic job helping to save lives. Every day of every year, people of all backgrounds get into danger in the water. During 2016, they saved 558 lives. They work tremendously hard and in very challenging conditions.  

I am attempting to stand up paddleboard (SUP)  all the way around Wales whilst fundraising money for the RNLI, Surfers Against Sewage and The North Wales Wildlife Trust. During the expedition I will be raising awareness about marine litter and its my ambition to do the expedition single use plastic free.

The expedition will be a 1000km journey around Wales including inland canals, rivers and along the rugged coastline, tackling the 2nd fastest flow of water in the world, negotiating busy shipping channels and challenging exposed headlands with complex waters. During the expedition I will be wild camping along the way. 

The aim of the trip is to bridge the gap between inland and coast, to highlight there is a problem of marine litter. We live in such a beautiful place and we need to make a change to protect it. Sadly 8 million bits of plastic enters our seas every day. 80% of marine litter originates from land-based sources. Sadly 1 million sea birds and 100,000 mammals die every year from the affects of marine litter. This has to change. Its my mission is to raise awareness, to inspire and educate others along the way to reduce single use plastic consumption.
