Stockport - Sale Rafted Canoe Charity Challenge

Event date: Saturday 14th May

Canoe from Stockport through to Sale on a rafted Canoe on 14th May 2022 to mark Mental Health Awareness Week 9th-15th May.

Are you willing to wade the water for mental health awareness week? Venture Out Activity Centre are an official delivery partner for British canoeing and will be delivering a rafted canoeing challenge for Beacon as a fundraising challenge. No experience required by participants as river leaders & assistants will be on hand to help/guide through the journey.

Rafted canoes are two canoes joined by a raft, making them impossible to capsize. Participants need to come dressed for the weather on the day (quick drying sporty type clothes) as there will be some splash and a good chance of wet feet. All drinks and food must be provided by participants (or bought from the stops); this can be carried with the group in waterproof barrels or can be delivered by friends and family on route.

All participants will need to fill in a consent form prior to the activity. The event is fully insured by Venture Out in regards to safety during the activity and equipment, including buoyancy aid and helmets will be provided. All transport to and from the start and finish will need to be arranged by yourselves.

To register, contact joanne.watson@beacon-counselling.org.uk to secure your place.
