We did it! We paddle boarded 206 miles, from the source of the River Thames, through Central London and out to sea, finishing on Southend Pier!
During our trip we carried out water testing for Thames21, to contribute towards citizen science and the data available to help understand the health of the River. We raised money for Tree Aid (planting trees in much needed communities within Africa) and DEC (supporting victims of the earthquake in Nepal). It was an epic adventure!
