Just a reminder, our 24 hour charity paddle-a-thon is next week, from 10:00 AM on Wednesday to 10:00 AM on Thursday. We will be aiming to paddle for 24 hours on kayaking ergos (think rowing machines but for kayaks) in order to raise money for Coventry and Warwickshire Mind. If you are able to help out by paddling, please state when you are free in this Doodle poll: https://doodle.com/poll/5z9cnq7uku9wtusu.

Hope to see you all at Real Ale tonight!

A massive thank you to everyone who helped during the 24-hour paddle-athon, whether it was taking part, supporting with cake or donating :)


Including bucket donations of £165, we have raised over £820 for Coventry and Warwickshire Mind.


Over the 24 hours, we paddled a combined distance of 354km, smashing the target of Devizes to Westminster (201km). If we had actually paddled along this route we could have made it to Dover! 
For comparison, that's approximately the distance from Alexandra Palace to the Eiffel Tower.



As every little helps, donations are still welcome :)
