In the summer of 2019, I became the first woman to stand up paddleboard coast to coast from Liverpool to Goole. I completed this adventure in 11 days, collecting plastic pollution and raising money for the 2MinuteBeachClean Foundation and the surf therapy charity, The Wave Project.
With the incredible generosity of friends + strangers, we exceeded all the fundraising targets. My personal footage of the adventure is featured on the BBC website and the story has been shared on TV, radio + in magazines.
I was joined by an extraordinary film maker, Frit Sarita Tam, and the film of the challenge will be released in the autumn of 2020.
My hope is that it will be an encouragement to be braver, find the magic of discovery on our doorstep and look after the places that we love.
