I have personally had a number of paddleboarding sessions with Let’s Paddle CIC over 2019. The service they provided, I truly believe, has been beneficial to both my personal mental health and well being. The sessions were conducted in a stress free, open learning environment, as a group and on an individual basis, as needed. This has helped bring teams together and being an immersive sport, helps also with general fitness too. Given the recent events within the Service, I want to ensure that others are given the same opportunity and benefits to their wellbeing, that I have received from Let’s Paddle. Not only to my Ambulance colleagues, but for other members of the Emergency Service and Military communities.

I attended a a beginners SUP session at Milton Country Park in July 2019.  Lisa was patient and reassuring.  She assessed my ability and was encouraging and supportive.  After the session, my confidence was greatly increased.  I benefited from being outdoors and felt relaxed and energised after the session.
