Kayak­ers pad­dle on for good cause

Bray People - - News -

A TRIP along the In­cha­vore River from source to sea was a wel­come chal­lenge for three friends from Round­wood re­cently as they raised €5,000 for the ISPCC.

Ro­nan Smith, Su­san Doyle and Cil­lian Johnston set off in their kayaks in re­cent weeks and made the two day trip which fin­ished up in Ark­low.

‘We were thrilled with all the sup­port and through spon­sor­ship and do­na­tions we were able to give some­thing back to this char­ity which is a very wor­thy cause,’ ex­plained Ro­nan.

This is the first such event the trio has been in­volved in and they now agree they have caught the wa­ter chal­lenge bug. ‘This is go­ing to be an an­nual event from now on and our next chal­lenge will be the Wa­ter­ways of Ire­land event which goes from East to West.

‘This will take a bit more than two days but we re­ally want to get in­volved,’ he added.

Af­ter a test­ing trip along the In­cha­vore River Ro­nan, Su­san and Cil­lian were in­vited into the River Café on the River­walk by pro­pri­etor

Teresa Cork­ish who treated them to steam­ing hot cof­fee and some well de­served lunch.

Thanks to all who gen­er­ously sup­ported the chal­lenge and wished the kayak­ers well.
