Paddlers for Life Windermere gathered for the final paddle of our sixteenth season on a calm Windermere amid beautiful scenery. There was fantastic paddling for all our boats, a moving flower ceremony and we ended by closing the eyes of our dragon heads before meeting socially for wonderful food.

Well done ladies. Here’s to next season ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ

That sounds like a perfect day, a great way to put your dragons to sleep for the winter. Hope we can come and paddle with you again next Summer (Paddlers for Life, Manchester) xx

Wish I could have been there! Miss you all! ๐Ÿฅฐ

We are proud to have paddled with Event 4 Harry's Heroes. Their team paddled with us the length of Windermere and back over more than 20 miles. In paddling this distance they demonstrated great mental determination and physical resilience to raise funds for paediatric services. They really do deserve your support if you can donate to the services close to their heart.

On Saturday 24th. June our paddlers will be supporting Event 4 Harry's Heroes which is a fundraiser supporting various paediatric services. The event team are doing a 100 mile walk over 40 Wainrights during this week. Their grand finale will be a 20 mile dragon boat paddle the length of Windermere and back on Saturday with two dragon boats and mixed teams from Paddlers for Life and the event team. Event 4 Harry's Heroes supporters are making a generous donation to Paddlers for Life acknowledging our support. We are always keen to support community events and other charity fundraisers.

Thanks for supporting Harry's Heros. I know how much you help meant to Dom, Sarah and the other Rowers. Excellent effort everyone.

I second this! You’re all incredible! Special thanks to Jane for helping us push through! Xxx

I was one of the crew for Eventfour Harrysheroes and just wanted to say a heartfelt personal thank you to everyone from Paddlers for Life Windermere who were involved yesterday. What a challenging, yet enjoyable day! Memories I will cherish for the rest of my life, whilst raising money for such worthy causes. Thank you!

In glorious weather, we 'dotted the eyes' of our dragons, celebrated our supporters and took some visitors on a tour of northern Windermere.

I remember when my mum painted one (might have been two) of the dragon heads. It was the first time I got to use spray paint! But I remember how wonderful the eye dotting ceremony was after that. Such fond memories of PfL and everyone involved.

Thanks for cheering me up yesterday Dragons!! X

A lovely morning of paddling ๐Ÿ›ถ๐Ÿ‰

This is fabulous

Hurray for waking up the dragons! ๐Ÿ‰

Wow! That's awesome!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
