Race starts 3pm 1st July
Hello!! We are a crazy bunch of paddlers at Wey Kayak Club and we are doing the raft race!! We want to raise funds for Headway Surrey. Our Team comprises of Sonja (Joint CEO Headway Surrey), Andy, Peter, Batty, Emily, Petrina, Jacqui, Bev, Clive and Linda.
We have now built two rafts, so we can race each other!! Sponsor us with the links at the bottom of the page!!
On 1st July we will be at Millmead Lock in Guildford (next to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre/Debenhams) being judged by the Mayor of Guildford and then at 3pm we start racing and paddle like mad to the Wey Kayak Club, Waterside Centre, Riverside, Guildford GU1 1LW. We hope to finish at 3.30pm, but the likelihood will be a bit later, maybe 4pm or 4.30pm. Where we will probably purchase a beer and burger from the Lions BBQ!! We hope to see you at the start or finish, or along the river bank. We will be in fancy dress, so look out for us and cheer us on.

Also counselling, educational groups, peer support groups, art, walking and social groups to enable independence and motivation to help recovery.
