We are fighting to make a world where diabetes does no harm


Thanks for taking the time to visit the JustGiving page and thank you to those who supported Adrian's previous challenges to raise money for Diabetes UK. Over the past six years, Adrian has looked for different and interesting ways to raise awareness and money for Diabetes UK. Each one has had its unique challenges (logistical, getting permission, weather, etc.) that meant success was never guaranteed.

In May 2024, Adrian will be joined on a tandem paddleboard by his brother, Timothy. Timothy is brand new to Stand Up Paddleboarding with one lesson under his belt! Working together, with the support of their brother Stephen along the route, they'll attempt to stand up paddle over 100 KM in two days along the River Thames. They'll start where the Thames is navigable, which is a few miles from the source of the River Thames in Gloucestershire.

Diabetes UK funds pioneering, world-class research into all forms of diabetes and its complications. The results of this research can improve the lives of people with diabetes all over the globe. Timothy and Adrian have friends and family members who are living with diabetes.

The previous challenges completed by Adrian were:

2018: 23 miles stand up paddling across the English Channel

2019: 57 miles stand up paddling across Scotland between Fort William and Inverness

2020: 50 miles stand up paddling along the Ohio River

2021: 100 miles stand up paddling on all the lakes of the English Lake District where he was granted permission (13 of 17 at the time)

2022: 220 miles stand up paddling across England from Portishead Pier, up the Rivers Severn and Avon to Bristol, along the Kennet and Avon Canal to Reading, and along the River Thames through Central London to the pier at Southend-on-Sea.

2023: 36 miles stand up paddling across the Irish Sea from the Isle of Man to Seascale in Cumbria.
