As part of our continuing efforts to engage with the wider community and support the positive well-being that being part of the stand-up paddle world brings, wot-sup have secured partnerships with both SECE Mind and St Luke’s Hospice. Both are local Essex charities and both hold very important places in our hearts.
Here’s a little bit about each of the charities, how we aim to support them across the year and how you can do your bit 🙂
Our aims At wot-sup our aim is to support these local charities by holding fundraising activities across the year; fun days, themed paddles and distance paddles to name a few ideas. Also by working with them we hope to raise the profile and awareness of the huge benefits of SUP to their clients and families. And lastly, as a thank you, we’d also like to engage with some of those that work for each of the charities, showing our appreciation of the work they do, and inviting them out to spend some time on the water with us or perhaps give them their first step on a paddleboard.
Via Just Giving You can show your support to both of these charities at any time by contributing to our Just Giving page, Just click on the link below to donate.
