Drake Circus – Kayak from Plymouth to Roscoff

18th May, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm


Drake Circus are holding a wonderful fitness fundraiser on the 18th May which aims to raise money for four fantastic local charities.

The following details have been provided by Drake Circus and provide an overview of the event. For full event details, please click here.

This Thursday, four charities will be attempting to virtually kayak from Plymouth to Roscoff (196 kilometres) in the Atrium at Drake Circus to raise money for each worthy cause.

Renowned polar explorer Antony Jinman will be visiting the kayakers at 1pm on the day to support the event, and students from Woodlands Special School will also be getting involved with the challenge too.

The charity kayak challenge is being supported by British Canoeing using three ergo kayaks that are currently on loan from the national governing body to the Mount Batten Centre Charity Trust.

The four charities taking part are The Mountbatten Centre, Shekinah, St Lukes Hospice and The Alzheimers Society, chosen by Drake Circus as its charities for the year. The virtual kayak is the first event for the four Drake Circus charities to work together and support each other.
