ANGUS LEIGH – R.N.L.I. KAYAK EXPEDITION (Can you spot him?)
Angus is paddling away on his expedition in aid of the RNLI. He set off from Cardiff on 24 June and, at the time of writing, has reached Aberystwyth. Although it is hard work, he is enjoying his trip very much. He has received a lot of help from RNLI stations in the form of kayak storage and advice on local waters. He has also been grateful for some wonderful Welsh hospitality (a huge thank you to Heather Dommett for her networking powers!) He has seen many puffins and a few formidable-looking jellyfish, as well as enjoying the company of a pair of dolphins alongside the kayak.
The Welsh coast has been very challenging, so it has taken Angus longer than anticipated to get this far. By the time you read this newsletter, he hopes to have progressed up the west coast of England towards Scotland. His final objective is still currently Inverness.
Angus is funding all expenses for the trip himself and has also raised over £1500 for the RNLI. A very large proportion of this sum has been donated by the people of Aynho and Angus would like to thank you warmly for your generosity. If anyone would still like to make a donation to the RNLI, see the link to Angus’s Just Giving page below. Alternatively, a cash donation or cheque (made out to the RNLI) can be dropped off at 12 Bowmen’s Lea in an envelope with your name. You can follow Angus’s progress on his Facebook page (see link below). He is not able to access the internet every day, so has decided to focus on Facebook rather than Twitter. Thank you to everyone who has liked the page or commented: it boosts Angus’s morale considerably!
