THANK YOU!!

Please accept our sincere thank you for the generous donation for Chestnut Tree House, the only Children’s Hospice in Sussex that was raised at Paddle Round The Pier. We really appreciated you selecting Chestnut Tree House as one of the nominated charities and for all your hard work in organising the event.

On behalf of the whole team at Whoopsadaisy we would like to say a huge thank you for allowing us to be part of such a wonderful weekend. We all had such great fun and all the volunteers and children really enjoyed being part of the event.
The money we have received will have such a huge impact on our children so thank you once again.
Caroline Mantanle – Whoopsadaisy


A huge thanks to Paddle Round The Pier for your great support for SurfAid International which has enabled us to help save children’s lives in the remote Mentawai Islands, off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. One in 10 Mentawai children do not live to the age of five – which is 15 times the death rate in developed countries – and your donations have helped us to try to bridge this gap.
