Over £13K raised to provide safe water for life!

Our third Stand Up For Safe Water fundraising event was our best one yet! Participants paddled their way to victory in amazing fancy dress costumes with the most incredible atmosphere.

The money raised from Stand Up for Safe Water 2022:

Big thanks goes to SUP Bristol, who tirelessly work with Frank Water to make this annual event a fundraising success. You can check out their Courses & Trips.

We would also like to give a big shout out to our incredible title sponsor Aquaplanet! Congratulations to Teletubby ‘Dipsy’ from Molson for winning stand out paddler of the day, and won the Aquaplanet Rainbow paddleboard!

Thank you to our volunteers, who gave up their time to help on the sign-in desk and keep paddlers safe on the pontoon. These are not small tasks and we genuinely really appreciate the help. For more volunteering opportunities with Frank Water, take a look at the volunteering pages of our website.

We would also like to thank Klean Kanteen, Tony’s Chocolonely, Bird&Blend Tea, Kabuto Noodles, Boom Kitchen and Boundless Snacks. They all provided the lovely treats in the goody bags. Thank you to the Cottage Inn for the soft drinks for all the competitors and organising the food on the day. Frank Water’s work depends on generous supporters, corporate partners and businesses donating and supporting our events and appeals.

Massive congratulations to all our teams who won 1st, 2nd and 3rd place as well as fancy dress! Big shout out to our friends Babich, Grind, Down Under Collective and Butcombe Brewery for generously donating these brilliant prizes.

We’d like also like to say thank you Snowboard Olympic Bronze Medalist Jenny Jones for compèring alongside Kate from SUP Bristol. They were a brilliant duo!
