MD Kevin Spear Solo kayaking the entire Cornish coast!
UPDATE 12/7/2022 – He did it!
9 long days of paddling, and several bad wind days later, Kevin made it all the way around the Cornish coast, on his own! From Rame Head near Plymouth, all the way to Hartland Quay on the Devon border.
As a team we are immensely proud of Kevin’s achievement and the money raised.
Photos and videos of the event can be found on our social media!
And we are working on a documentary-style video of the whole event – coming soon…

So, what is 'The Big C Kayak'?
In June 2022 Kevin Spear, MD at Mortgage Marketplace, circumnavigated the entire Cornish Coast via solo Sea Kayak.
His solo paddle lasted 9 days, taking him from Rame Head near Plymouth to all the way to Hartland Quay, just across the Devon border.
Kevin is passionate about the outdoors and is a keen Sea Kayaker, but nonetheless this was a gruelling test of his skills and endurance. Our hope is that through as much sharing and donating as possible, the event will raise a significant amount of money!
You can see the donations and encouraging messages on the JustGiving page.
Our fundraiser event for two fantastic causes:
We raised the money for Anthony Nolan and Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity, with the money for the later going to The Oncology and Haematology Unit at Bristol Royal Infirmary. Cancer touches all of us in our lifetime, either directly or a family member or friend. A significant amount of the money available for research and treatment is raised through charitable donations.
