24 Hour Paddle Challenge raises almost £4000 for Charity

Sixth Form student Jessie U. and her two friends Lucy and Katie have raised almost £4,000 (with Gift Aid) this weekend by completing a 24 hour paddle challenge.

From a humble target of £500 in aid of Shelter and NHS charities, just two days after launching their fundraising page the girls had already upped their target twice to £1,000.

Their schedule saw Katie take the first hour’s paddle at 00:00 on Saturday morning, followed by Jessie and then Lucy. Each of the girls completed their hour slot with a smile on their face and with support from their families. They live streamed each of their paddles, in total Jessie rowed 50miles! – click here to see them in action!

PE Teacher, Mrs Katie Collins had this to say, “What a fantastic achievement Jessie and her friends were able to accomplish. A truly remarkable feat to raise awareness and so much money for those in need in this current pandemic. True Bloxhamist spirit shown throughout. “

There is still time to donate to their fundraiser: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/24hrpaddlemachineJLK
