New Year New Goals

2006 saw the launch of PaddleAid as an idea and a goal to raise money for WaterAid. This was done to help improve the standard of life for people who live without one of the most abundant and readily available commoditities world wide, yet have to survive with little water. I wanted to do this via kayaking a hobby of many people world wide and myself as we enjoy this essential and life supporting commodity in our spare time. The year was agreat success as over £3000 was raised and 200 peoples lives have been changed for the better by this achievement. I could not have done it without all your help, support and of course your donations. So a huge thankyou.

So what now in 2007? the new official paddleaid website is now up and running and found at the website is aimed to keep you updated on what I have planned in the upcoming months as well as any other charitable events that are taking place within paddle sports to help raise the profile and make a difference. We will continue to be supporting the access to rivers campaign which is going from strength to strength and look forward to any new campaigns that may be sent our way over the next 12 months. You can email any of your own events or campaigns to we would be more than happy to promote them and support you in your vision.

As for me I am hoping to increse massively the contribution made so far to WaterAid and continue to make that difference with your help. I already have two more record attempts planned and will be updating the blog shortly.
