Wirral Kayak Challenge 2018
Congratulations to all 86 kayakers taking part in the Wirral Kayak Challenge 2018, to raise money for Claire House and Wirral Holistic Care Services.
On calm waters the group set off from New Brighton, to a sandbank beyond Hilbre Island where they waited for the tide to turn before continuing on to Thurstaston, a total of 15 miles and in glorious sunshine.
Forum’s Michael Hardman, a first time participant, found the sunburn more of a hindrance than the 10,000 paddle strokes.
Michael thanked colleagues for all their support and sponsorship, saying that ‘the event was a big success and (despite the sunburn) it was a great experience. We couldn’t have had a better day for it, and all the competitors made it to the finish line to raise lots of money for two great charities.’
