Imagine rowing the full length of the Caledonian Canal in Scotland, starting from Fort William to Inverness (60 miles) in four days. That’s what Nick Still from Crewe will be doing this May with a little help from his friends and family.

Nick Still will be kayaking as part of the Year of Sport campaign which was launched at the beginning of January and aims to raise £10,000 from his challenge for St Luke’s.

Nick Still said, “My father Robert Still was diagnosed with small cell Cancer in May 2014 and battled the disease for 6 months, he was fortunate to spend his last few days and hours in St Luke’s Hospice. The support and care given to both my father and my family was second to none, everything possible was done to ensure his last hours were as peaceful as possible. And for this myself and my family are forever indebted.”

Seven of Nick’s dedicated friends and family have very kindly offered to support him during his four day adventure. Barry Williams, Kevin Lunt, Dominic Brenan, Colin Morbey, Phil Tantum, Steve Jones, Rob Simpson and Mark Birchall will be assisting Nick.

Mark Porter Corporate and Community Fundraiser said, “ What a great way to start our Year of Sport campaign, hopefully the four days of kayaking will be plain sailing! From everyone here at St Luke’s we wish Nick and his friends and family the best of luck.”
