AquaPaddle – BlueSpace

This is the heart of what we do

We run BlueSpace or blue therapy sessions for those who need them for mental or physical health reasons. We have built a network of Delivery Partners from the paddling community, across the country, to provide these sessions to their local communities. All these activities takes volunteers time and money. We need to raise money to help those in need.
