Sounds like a great idea Adie. Hope it is a successful event and raises loads of money. Press article looks good too - with luck you should get more afterwards too.

Have been interviewed by BBC Radio Linclnshire for this aswell now, will post link to it as expecting it to air in next day or so. The team have this strange idea of me being put in a kayak for a couple of laps..... watch this space for a potential video worth 250 on U been framed !!

Event is this Saturday so hoping for lots of snow n wind ;-)

You paint an interesting picture! Do you mean 'snow' and 'wind'? Now I have got a fit of the giggles and can't stop!

Had a fabulous event. All the lads did a sterling job of kayaking for the full 24hrs, all absolutely knackered but spirits never wained. Amazing support from loads of people and should have raised about 4,000 :-).

They lifted me into a two man boat and paddled me round with them all for the final lap today. Was great to be back on the water, but bit emotional for us all.

Just trying to think what to do next.... has anyone with quite limited mobility due to mnd done a tandem parachute jump? cos I fancy doing that :-)

Good to hear it was a successful, if emotional day. Looking forward to hearing what you take on as your next challenge.
