OAR POWER - HELPING OTHERS

Raising Money For Great Causes

One of our primary reasons for undertaking this enormous challenge, was to use it as an opportunity to raise some money for some charities that are very dear to us.
It was impossible for us to choose just one charity to support,
so we made a list and then decided to support all of them.

Please visit their webpages to find out who they are and what they do.

Fundraising pages will be set up as soon as we can, however we can
announce that the charities we will be supporting are:

RNLI

The RNLI is a charity that saves lives at sea.
Volunteer lifeboat crews provide a 24 hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland, seasonal lifeguards look after people on busy beaches and the Flood Rescue Team helps those affected by flooding.
RNLI crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives since 1824 but they are more than a rescue service. They influence, supervise and educate people too. The Community Safety teams explain the risks and share safety knowledge with anyone going out to sea or to the coast. And the international teams work with like-minded organisations to help tackle drowning in communities at risk all around the world.

MIND

Every year , one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling. Mind believe no-one should have to face a mental health problem alone. They listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner. When you are experiencing a mental health problem, supportive and reliable information can change your life.

In Ellie’s memory, her parents, Nick and Elaine set up the charity “Ellie’s Love”. The purpose of this charity is to support local people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families. All monies raised will go to help people with cystic fibrosis whilst at home or during stays in hospitals or at the East Anglian Children’s Hospices (EACH).
