2012 Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant
A huge flotilla of boats assembled on the Thames at Putney to paddle in this celebratory event. They paddled along the Thames to eventually pass in front of the Royal Barge with Queen Elizabeth II watching the event.
Paddlers for Life paddled to proudly celebrate the achievements of the charity since its inception in 2007. See more information.
Sue and Louisa organised our participation in this event which required much preparation and planning.
At the early stages of the pageant the dragon boat crews are getting into their stride. Artemis Diana had mostly survivor paddlers with a couple of supporters. Lucy at Low Wood was borrowed by the International Breast Cancer Paddler’s Commission and crewed by an international team of breast cancer paddlers.
