Paddle Race - East Cheshire Hospice

Paddle Race

Splash your way to the finish line and race your buddies with a Paddle Board race fundraiser!

Start by finding a venue that will allow you to hire paddle board equipment for your fundraising event, you never know, you may even find a location that is willing to sponsor your event and let you use the site for free!

If Stand Up Paddle boards are not your thing you could hire a kayak or canoe instead, just make sure everyone is using the same equipment to keep the race fair.

Ask for donations to take part or spectate the event, you could even heat up the competition by taking bets on who you think will win!


How do I start fundraising?

The best way to collect sponsorship would be to take cash on the day of the event. We have plenty of collection buckets and pots you can use for your event, please see contact details below of how to get in touch with us.

If you want to keep your donations online, start by setting up your Just Giving page here and follow the simple step-by-step process to creating your fundraising page. Make sure to fill in the details about your fundraiser, set yourself a fundraising target, share your page with friends and family on social media, email, WhatsApp, text… And away you go!



It costs £7,500 to keep the Hospice running for 1 day, so every penny that you can raise is important. You may never know exactly how your support will help but you can be assured that the impact your support will have on local families who can benefit from the Hospice services at one of the most difficult and emotional times will be huge and ever so appreciated.

If you would like any advice or if you have any questions at all please contact or call 01625 433477
