Business are being invited to take part in a Mega SUP challenge to raise money for Cornwall Air Ambulance.

On the 2nd June, watersports students from Falmouth Marine School will host the event where teams will compete against each other, completing an obstacle course on a 17 foot mega paddleboard.

The Heli appeal is aiming to raise £2.5m to bring a faster and bigger air ambulance to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly by 1st April 2020.

Student Matt Hawker, aged 17, previously from Richard Lander School, said no experience is needed for the challenge, “just get a team together and book your place”.

Fellow student Skye Owen, 18, from St Austell, said “we have to run an event as part of our course and we wanted to do something that would make a difference to our community”

The event will be held from 10am to 4pm at Stithians Lake and will be overseen by South west Lakes Trust, the delivery partners for the Watersports courses at Falmouth Marine School.

The cost is £10 per person, for teams of four to eight people, with all money going to the charity with food and drinks available from the café to purchase.

“It’s great that our students get the experience of running an event whilst raising money for charity,” said Hannah Mason Course Manger.

“It’s also the perfect opportunity for businesses to use the event for team building.”
