'The Big C Kayak'

Charity Fundraise 2022

MD Kevin Spear is Solo kayaking the entire Cornish coast – over 420 miles!

Our event has now begun! It will run until 6th July 2022, after which you can follow progress and updates over on our socials.

So, what is 'The Big C Kayak'?

The event will be undertaken in June 2022 and is a circumnavigation of the entire Cornish Coast via solo Sea Kayak, completed by Kevin Spear, MD at Mortgage Marketplace. 

He will solo paddle for 10 – 12 days from Rame Head near Plymouth to Hartland Quay, just across the Devon border – a distance of 422 miles!

Kevin is passionate about the outdoors and is a keen Sea Kayaker, but nonetheless this will be a gruelling test of his skills and endurance. Our hope is that through as much sharing and donating as possible, the event will raise upwards of £20,000.

Please help this incredible cause and cheer Kevin on by donating as much as you can. Every penny counts. Donate now by visiting the JustGiving page, where you can choose which charity to support.

Over 45 years later, three people a day are now given a second chance of life, thanks to generous funders and an ever-growing stem cell register. Anthony Nolan recruit potential donors, funding ground-breaking research, and providing the best post-transplant care from clinical nurses, we can cure people’s blood cancer together.

We will be raising 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.

"The Oncology and Haematology Unit at BRI is a centre of expertise and care for the whole of the South West region, delivering some amazing work. This charity is close to our hearts as both myself and another member of our team have had close family members treated by the team there and we are committed to doing the fundraise to support the tremendous work being done there every day."

"Anthony Nolan is celebrating it's 50th year in 2022 and is at the forefront of Cancer research, development and transplant treatment. They do incredible, life changing work for people affected by life threatening blood cancers, like Leukaemia and Lymphomas. I have been involved with them for over 30 years, initially as a donor, and more recently recruiting new donors and supporters."
