The Big Stand Up

£3,487

Target: £5,000
Our Motivation

On the 17th and 18th of May 2021 we are embarking on a 30 mile endurance Stand Up Paddle in just two days to complete the length of the Basingstoke Canal in support of Movember and raising awareness of men’s mental health and the importance of social connection during these unprecedented times. The team will set off on the 17th May to give hope and optimism to others for the coming year.

The team consists of Charley Boorman (Adventurer/Presenter), James Phelps (Actor – Harry Potter), Damon Hill (F1 World Champion), James Haskell (England Rugby), Chloe Madeley (Presenter/Fitness Coach), Matthew Wright (Journalist, Presenter), D*Face (Street Artist), Amy Voce (Radio presenter), Nick and Giles English (Bremont Watches Founders), expedition organiser Ben Bowers and paddle guide Paul Hyman.

The group of friends are coming together, shoulder to shoulder through a shared activity to set an example for other men that no matter the situation you find yourself in, looking to friends for support and sharing in experiences can be a good way to get through the tough times. The trip will require both physical and mental resilience which all the team members have developed over time through their own personal challenges. Building the resilience to overcome those challenges, talking about their experiences and seeking help and support have been vital tools to thrive.

Paddling together they will help each other through the challenges on the water whilst also taking time along the way to connect and talk opening up about some of the tough stuff in their lives.
