Please support Matt who is planning to paddle a kayak the length of the Basingstoke canal, in support of Ocean Stars.

Matt says "Somehow I came across the idea of this challenge, armed myself with the necessary equipment and began training. About 6 weeks into my training, and with a month to go, I think the challenge (which consists of 26 miles of kayaking along with about 4 miles carrying my canoe around locks) is going to take me roughly 8 hours.

"It's a massive challenge for me and it's all for an extremely worthy cause, so I'd like to take this opportunity  to ask you donate whatever you can afford, and 'like' this page on facebook so that word spreads. The smallest amounts of money can make the most incredible changes to people in Sri Lanka's lives."

Thank you Matt and good luck.
