Charity and Adventure Challenges
We have trained a large number of customers for specific challenges and adventures including helping people kayak the channel on 3 different occasions, canoe the Great Glenn Canoe Trail, Paddle the entire River Great Ouse and also the River Thames. Through our residential programmes we also help young people and corporates learn new skills through team building, bushcraft, goal setting and other team challenges.

Our coaching and support for charity challenges has raised lots of money for local and national charities including:

- ABF – The Soldiers Charity
- Faces – Supporting families and charities suffering with mental health and domestic abuse
- Keech Hospice in Bedfordshire

Fundraising Events for Charities

We have organised specific fundraising events for charities as their annual fundraiser. In simple terms we organise the logistics, equipment and event safety whilst you recruit participants and supporters to raise money. Several charities including Keech Hospice and Faces have used our services and events to raise thousands of pounds for their annual totaliser.

We have organise several different formats for them including

Team adventure Days with a series of activities

The charities chose from a number of activities including watersports, low ropes, bushcraft, campfire cooking either for fun and bragging rights or as a semi serious competition. These are great fun with plenty of friendly banter and always leave participants with happy memories for a good cause.

Canoe and Kayak Race

We have organised a bespoke racing event on the stunning Victorian Embankment in Bedford doing laps. Competitors complete mile long circuits like a paddling version of the sponsored walk. We provided the canoes, kayaks and SUP's for the races working with the charity to make the event fun, safe and memorable.

We organise paddling trips and micro adventures to a wide range of destinations within the UK and abroad such as canoeing the Yukon, Great Glen Canoe Trail or sea kayaking off the South Coast which can be used as a charity challenge.
