Since establishing the business in 2007, we are quite often asked to donate canoe vouchers, our services and equipment to schools or individuals to raise money for charity.
The first challenge we were asked to support in 2015 was from Gareth Box from Christ the Rock Christian Fellowship. Gareth and six of the members are going to do a canoe challenge starting 29th March this year details are bellow. To support the challenge there is a link at the bottom of this page
About my fundraising
This fund raising page has been created to raise donations to support the Albania Project. This is an extremely worthwhile project that supports street children, orphans, disabled adults/children and abused children from different parts of Albania.
For many years Christ the Rock Christian Fellowship has been carrying out mission work in Albania, supporting the local church in Korce with their work in the Orphanage, Street Child Centre, Old Age Home and the Safe House. In recent years this work has expanded to include support of the Football Camps that have been organised for children from villages all over the country.
In order to raise funds to support this amazing project, our team of 6 (Gareth Box, Nigel John, Sarah Brankin, Brad Prosser, Ian Bright (From Bright Windows) and Jack Hopkins) are going to canoe over 130 miles through the canal system from Oxford to Bradford on Avon. This challenge will be completed in 5 days, requiring us to complete approximately 27 miles each day (over 8 hours of canoeing each day!). What makes this challenge even harder is the fact that the canals have still water, meaning we will have to use pure man power to cover each and every mile!!
We kindly ask for your support of our challenge, no matter how small. This work is making a massive difference to so many people?s lives!
If you would like more information about this work, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. When you make a donation, don’t forget to check the Gift Aid box if you’re a UK taxpayer as then your charity can claim an extra 25% from the government!
