A Cornish toddler’s story has now hit iTunes with its very own podcast channel. The amazing story of Joe Way is now available to download as a podcast, keeping people up to date with our fundraising efforts as well as publishing new interviews from the people involved and from the people who have been inspired…
Joe’s family have uploaded many interviews including one from actor Ben Richards from ITV’s 'The BILL' talking about the Joe Way Paddle For Life and his surf lessons with Ben and Sophie Skinner. The latest download is Matt Way's interview on the radio about the need to support Cornish charity Shelterbox.
Matt, Joe’s dad, said “Being on iTunes has opened up another form of communicating Joe’s story. We are continually updating and coming up with new ideas to find new people to inspire and to support the annual paddle in Joe’s memory which will continue to raise money for any charity”.
The latest charity’s to sign up to the Newquay toddlers paddle are SCOPE, Cancer research, Children’s hospice UK and just this week Help for Hero’s has also come on board.
Over £75,000.00 has been raised during Joe’s short life and over the 19 months since he passed away with £59,000.00 going to the Precious Lives Appeal. The charity’s joining the Paddle For Life website after reading Joe’s story are set to grow and this years event is on the 23rd September at Newquay.
The original Paddle for Life started after lifeguards from Fistral Beach held a Joe Way memorial paddle to raise money for charity in 2008.
Team Joe are aiming to double the amount raised from £7,000.00 to £14,000.00 for over 15 charities at this years event which as always is supported by the local community.
