One of the reasons Paddlers for Life Windermere can provide these exciting dragon boat and V6 outrigger paddling activities to cancer survivors is because we get wonderful support.
Today it was the residents of Silverdale who both volunteered to help at our coffee morning in Silverdale's Gaskell Memorial Hall and also supported us by coming to enjoy the refreshments, stalls, raffle and tombola.
A huge 'Thank You' from all our paddlers.

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 🌸🌸

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! πŸ₯°

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.

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 πŸ›ΆπŸ‰

This is fabulous

Hurray for waking up the dragons! πŸ‰

Wow! That's awesome!πŸ’•πŸ’•
