About the event

Join us to help raise funds for Nelson's Journey - a Norwich based charity which supports children and young people under the age of 18yrs, living in Norfolk, who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life

The day will be split into two!

Firstly don anything purple or grab a Nelson's Journey t-shirt to paddle through the city in a lovely purple parade. Starting at 10.30am and ending at The Red Lion Bishopgate where you can grab some lunch and chat to some of the volunteers and team and learn more about the work they do. Hire a board from us - of which 50% will go to Nelson's Journey or bring your own board and donate what you can afford - 100% of which will go to Nelson's Journey.

Pre requisites: No beginners - you must have at least 4 hours of experience or have had a beginners lesson with Norfolk Paddle Boards prior to undertaking the Purple Paddle. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult (no more than 1:4)

Those of you wishing to then undertake a slightly bigger challenge - From 2pm we are holding the Purple Paddle challenge. This will be a point to point from the Red Lion to the River Garden (approx 3.5km) then on to The Cut at Brundall. From start to finish the whole route is 14km, but there is the option to stop at the River Garden. Fundraising packs are available to then raise further funds via sponsorship - if you intend to partake in the challenge please RSVP to our separate event.

Pre requisites for the 14km: No beginners - you must have at least 10 hours of experience and be fit and healthy to undertake this paddle as we aim to complete this paddle in 4hours. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
