Eye Feel Good Charity Canoe Trip Ready for the off!!

Posted on April 13, 2011 @ 8:32 PM in Canoeing

The annual Eye Feel Good charity canoe trip is certainly making great use of some of Northern Ireland’s unique canoe trails.

Their paddle from from Antrim to Castlerock will take in both the Lough Neagh and Lower Bann Canoe Trails on 14th to 16th April 2011.


The 2011 expedition which will involve 36 paddlers and their team mascot 'Sally' is made up of some old faces from last year, some experienced paddlers and some folks who are new to the world of paddling.

Richard Fee, Eye Feel Good Chairman, said "I'm really excited about this Year's trip. We have a great mix of people on the trip this year. We have people from every walk of life."

Mark Kennedy, Eye Feel Good Secretary, added "We wanted to try and go one step further this year by involving more people and also especially people who had never paddled before. Eye Feel Good is all about fund-raising through fun and adventure and this trip is going to give people the chance to do all of that in 3 days".

One of Northern Ireland’s leading canoeing providers is supporting the expedition.  John Huubucks from Mobile Team Adventure said "What can I say about these guys. Each year they just seem to keep pushing the envelope further. Eye Feel Good's inclusive thinking towards paddle sports and fundraising is refreshing and inspiring. I'm delighted to be working with the guys on this year's expedition. We have a great group of participants and it's going to be an amazing trip"

Eye Feel Good is a charity foundation based in Northern Ireland with the aim of raising money through organised events donating to those living with cancer within the community.

You can support the participants of the 2011 expedition by donating on JustGiving.

To get a feel of what it is all about check out their blog on the training event on the Lough Neagh Canoe Trail.

Good luck guys from all at CanoeNI.com – a great challenge for a worthy cause.
