'Down and Ready' day. 19th. March, 2017
Well! What a day that Roz planned and delivered for us. It will get our paddling season off to a great start and help newer members get into their paddling 'stride' quickly. Thanks to Roz for untangling the knot of what paddling is all about.
All the contributions from so many members just shows why being part of Paddlers for Life is so rewarding with everyone contributing with such generosity and a wide diversity of skills.
Our first event of 2017, Silverdale Coffee morning fundraiser.
Mags has done a great job yet again organising this fundraising event. Thanks to the efforts of many Paddlers for Life members and the generous efforts of Silverdale residents it was another successful event.
Due to the generosity of Silverdale residents purchasing from the many stalls, enjoying tombola and raffle games and refreshments a tremendous £1317-16p was raised for Paddlers for Life funds to enable cancer survivor dragon boat paddling to continue. A huge 'Thank you!' to everyone for baking, growing plants, collecting things for the stalls and donating to the refreshments, raffle and tombola..
Meet some of the members.
A timely opportunity!
A local photographer, Peter Bagnall, contacted me recently.
He found some video footage on his hard drive. Peter filmed a very early launch of a Paddlers for Life dragon boat on Windermere back in 2008 and edited a short film for a DVD to be used for fund raising. He has kindly provided a copy. David Robinson was a member at the time and narrated the commentary.
Here we are ready to celebrate our tenth season of paddling!
