Dear fellow paddlers,

We have just received an email from the Charities Commission which says:

We are satisfied that OXFORD PADDLERS FOR LIFE is a charity and it has been entered onto the Register of Charities with the Registered Charity Number 1178628.

We are now much closer to having our first paddle in our own boat together! This is so encouraging and a really important step for us as a group as well as being a big relief that it was processed so quickly! Now we have that Charity number our application for a bank account and grants begins.

Meanwhile if you can make Tuesday evening’s meetup at the Vicky Arms from 7.30pm for an hour we look forward to seeing you.

Anne-Marie, Sarah and Jennie
