Joining Paddlers for Life Windermere.

Who can join?

Anyone diagnosed with breast cancer or any other cancer is welcome to join Paddlers for Life. We also welcome family members and friends who have supported you during your diagnosis and treatment and also as you move forward after treatment.

Come and try paddling.

We would suggest that you come and join us to experience paddling in our splendid boats and get to know some regular paddlers. It is a good idea to contact us first using our email or the contact form at the bottom of this page. Please consider providing a phone number so that a trustee can ring you back to talk to you about the team and answer any questions you may have.

Health advice prior to paddling.

If you decide you would like to  join us, we ask that new paddlers who have finished a cancer treatment meet with our health practitioner to discuss their readiness for exercise so they can be given specific advice tailored to their fitness levels after treatment and discuss any personal health questions in confidence.

Paddlers must have read and signed this 2023 Indemnity Form prior to paddling. By completing the online membership form you are confirming that you have read and fully understand the 2023 Indemnity Form.

If you decide you wish to paddle regularly we will ask you to pay a small annual membership fee of £40 and fill in the online membership form. Prior to the start of each  new season, existing and new members will be given a link to complete the online membership form.
