Surfewrs go Paddling for Charity

A CHARITY paddle from Saunton to Croyde is being organised by a Braunton surfer this weekend to help tsunami victims on the east coast of Sri Lanka.

Tim Tanton organised last yearA?a??E?s successful Paddle 4 Relief, in which more than 80 surfers raised A?A?2,000 for a project to build and equip a classroom in Arugam Bay.

“This time, we want to raise more than A?A?2,500 to build a pre-school in Komari, 20 kilometres north of Arugam bay,” Tim told the Gazette.

“We are hoping the event will be just as successful and are aiming to hit 100 paddlers this year,” he added.

On Sunday at around 2pm, surfers will be paddling out from Saunton to Croyde and back. At each beach they will be forming a memorial circle to remember those affected by the tragedy on Boxing Day in 2004.

A safety boat from Saunton Surf Life Saving Club will in attendance and under-16A?a??E?s are asked to have an adult in attendance.

After the paddle, there will be a barbecue and raffle in the evening with music by a local four-piece band.

“We are advising everyone to get there early, as some of those that registered last year left it too late in the day and were unable to get into the beach car park,” added Tim.

For more details, or to register for the event, telephone Tim on 07917 032523 or Surfed Out on (01271) 812512 or 891286.
