The Blue Mile : 4 September 2011 : Cremorne to the London Aquarium : Oceanic outfits
Kayak a mile in support of your playground.
Our rivers, oceans, lakes and wetlands are remarkable places. Without them, there would be no life. They provide us with water to drink and food to eat. They’re home to an astounding array of fish, animal and plant life. They are our kayaking playgrounds.
But our water habitats are under severe threat from dangers like climate change and pollution. Through The Blue Mile, WWF is raising money to protect these amazing environments. The Blue Mile London extravaganza takes place on 4 September, and all you need to do to show your support is dedicate 1 mile to some form of water activity, kayaking for example.
In order for us to show our support on our home turf, Cremorne Riverside and Kayaking London are coordinating a Thames Blue Mile event:
“We’re getting immersed in the World Wide Fund for Nature’s Blue Mile Campaign to help raise funds to protect our rivers and oceans. This event is open to all ages and abilities, even if you haven’t paddled with us before. A fun and worthwhile activity for the summer, we will be kayaking from our base in Chelsea to the London Aquarium and back in ocean-inspired fancy dress! No experience is required, so get your pals together and help us raise some funds for a great cause.”
Sunday 4 September, 12:30 – 2:30pm
