With great weather conditions and outstanding community spirit the Paddle for Life Event was a resounding success on Thursday 23rd September down on Newquay Harbour. The event saw over 200 paddlers of all ages and abilities taking part to do their bit to raise money for their chosen charities, of which 20 charities will benefit from this single event. One of the many charities which took part in the paddle was the ââ¬ËCornwall Blind Associationââ¬â¢ lead by British champion Jonny Fryer. Ben Ford, one of the team riders (paddler) for the association had this to say about the event; ââ¬ÅWe canââ¬â¢t thank the Joe Way Paddle for Life team enough, their dedication to Joeââ¬â¢s story means surfers like us can really get involved in fundraising for our own charitiesââ¬Â. Over 600 spectators cheered on the paddlers, buying raffle tickets and taking part in the eveningââ¬â¢s auction. With ã5000 raised, the 2010 paddle looks set to be the most successful to date with the number of entrants and spectators. Tiger 24 kindly donated their services, providing a live stream of the event to hundreds of online watchers many of whom used the new iphone app to watch the event on their phones. They also kept the crowds on the harbour entertained with their witty banter. Bookers wholesalers provided over ã500 worth of burgers, sausages and rolls to create what can only be described as a barbeque of epic proportions. With the crowd fed and watered, the biggest highlight of the day made its appearance...TITAN THE ROBOT.
