Paddles at the ready! Join us for our next Meet & Paddle event at the London Phoenix Outdoor Centre.

Are you ready to get your paddle on? Join us in London on Saturday 20th August. You'll have a chance to enjoy some time amongst nature whilst kayaking out on the beautiful Brent Reservoir all while meeting other young adults in their 20s or 30s who get what it's like to be living beyond cancer. Suitable for all abilities and plus 1's are also welcome.

We know you may be feeling nervous about getting together and meeting people in person again, which is why we've taken every precaution to ensure your safety both before and during this event.

All equipment that you'll be using will have been thoroughly cleaned along with all seating, changing areas, and communal spaces. The way this session is delivered has been changed to ensure that participants and your instructors can be socially distanced from each other.

*In order to reduce the COVID risk to the smallest possible risk we can only offer places for this event to those who've already completed active treatment. This has been a hard but necessary decision to ensure your safety*

Carolina was diagnosed with cancer in her 30s and knows what it's like to cope with the impact cancer can have on your life. 

"I loved going to the Meet & Paddle because I felt so welcomed and encouraged to take on a completely new activity and have as much fun as possible while getting to know others who get it. I felt super safe and supported during the whole activity and it was awesome to finish the fun paddling with a nice catch-up with amazing people! I will definitely sign up again. Thank you Trekstock for giving us such joyful activities!"
