Kayak for Blackthorn
Why we need your help
WHAT ARE WE RAISING FUNDS FOR?
In 2018 we will be building a physic garden - a healing space containing medicinal plants. The garden will benefit our service users who will use it as a therapeutic space to work in, especially those who are less mobile as it will include easily-accessible raised beds. We also hope to attract more members of the local community to enjoy our hidden oasis and our vegetarian café. The aim of this campaign is to raise £10,000 towards the garden.
WHO IS DOING IT AND HOW?
My name is Susie Chassagne, I am the Marketing Manager and Vocational Coach at Blackthorn. In July this year I am planning to kayak down a white water river in the French Alps. As a complete novice I have roughly 3 years’ worth of training to do in just 6 months. I expect to spend over 150 hours on the water in order to learn the skills I need during that time.
Given my lack of skill, knowledge and equipment and the scale of the challenge, this will be a community project. The idea being to bring people together for a common cause where new friendships are made and experiences are shared, much like the work we do at Blackthorn.
I will be so grateful for your donation, and if you think you might be able to help in other ways I would love to hear from you. Contact me to have a chat: email@example.com
