Sudbury to Bures Sponsored Canoe for Christian Aid

14 July 2013 No Comment



To sponsor go to www.justgiving.com/John-Boardman2 .

Following the very successful sponsored canoe events in 2011 and 2012 raising thousands of pounds for Christian Aid’s work in Sierra Leone and the Middle East, we would like to invite you to participate in this year’s Sudbury to Bures Canoe event. We will be setting off from Sudbury on Monday 5th August. The cost to participants is £20 per person.

The fantastic thing about this partnership project is that like last time for each £1 raised, it is match funded to make £4 for the project, quadrupling the money raised! Last year, the total sponsorship was over £1,000 creating a total of over £4,000! You can read more about the project here.

If you would like to challenge yourself and paddle to end poverty in this enjoyable event, please download and read Christian Aid’s terms & conditions and the boating company’s risk assessment , and download and complete the Registration Form . You can also download the Sponsorship Form .
