Paddlers for Life, Windermere is a breast cancer survivor dragon boat team.
We are a registered charity,
Charity Commission No. 1121539.
Our members are people who have been treated for cancer, most often breast cancer, or family members and friends or other supporters. We paddle dragon boats on Windermere at Low Wood Bay near Ambleside in Cumbria, UK. This exercise helps health and wellbeing both during and after treatment and also ameliorates some of the effects of treatment such as lymphoedema and tiredness. The friendship, shared experience and team spirit of paddling can be extremely supportive after a cancer diagnosis.
