Unfortunately after 400 miles of kayaking, Lee suffered an injury - but this didn’t end the challenge, Philippa stepped in to join Nick and took Lee’s place! As a relatively inexperienced kayaker (in her own words) it is even more incredible that Philippa went on to kayak 800 miles with Nick!
During the four month challenge, Philippa:
Cleaned 16 beaches
Involved 122 volunteers
Collected 139 bags of rubbish plus 50 kg of litter whilst in their kayaks
Gave 5 presentations to schools and groups and have another 4 lined up

We are looking forward to working with Philippa and Nick on future sea kayaking projects – look out for more information next year!
