Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My challenge is now in progress. It started on Saturday 16 September. In a group of one I'm paddling 130 miles of the non-tidal River Thames. The adventure startedin Lechlade, Gloucester down to Kew Bridge, West London. That's around 16 miles  of paddling each day along with a total of 45 locks to find my way through or around.

For an added challenge, and a touch of eccentricity,  I'll be paddling a sturdy (fingers crossed) inflatable kayak. I'll be camping every night along the way, except for the one night's luxury accommodation in a youth hostel .... live the dream!

To make this challenge worthwhile and with your support I'd like to raise money for Kidney Research UK. To learn more about their amazing work, check out the video on the bottom of the about us page on their website www.kidneyresearchuk.org. 

Any donation you'd like to make will be very much appreciated and will be a great motivation for me as I  paddle down the River Thames. More importantly it will further Kidney Research UK's effort into life saving research to help the 3 million people in the UK with kidney disease. Thank you.
