Paddle for CancerSupport is a competition, a festival, a cancer awareness event, and a fundraiser open to everyone.
It is also the primary source of finance for ESCA CancerSupport and its services.
Taking place the first week of September, the festival is a family day full of activities that include

Why Participate?

The Fundraisers Challenge

There are two ways to win the competition: dragon boat racing and the Fundraisers Challenge.  Teams compete by raising funds for ESCA CancerSupport that help provide counselling, specialised fitness classes, cancer awareness, and cancer resources in English for anyone affected by cancer.

The team that raises the most funds is the proud recipient of the Fundraisers Challenge Cup!
