Windsurfing 4 Cancer raised more than £20,000

Welcome to Sunrise Sunset 2009 with details of the first major fundraising event from the new charity, Windsurfing 4 Cancer Research (W4CR). This fun event took place on the 3rd May, the Bank Holiday Sunday and included venues across the UK, Ireland and other parts of Europe.

What a day! Various descriptions have been heard "Fantastic", "Monster day", "Emotional" but perhaps the Mayor's observation summed it up well. "Everyone is obviously having fun AND doing something so worthwhile"

The BBC broadcast from Hayling Island is online but please note that the '20 windsurfers' was the number at Sunrise!

By midday there were more than 120!

Donations and sponsorship now exceeds £20,000 (15th May). Well towards the target of £25,000.

The prize draw will take place on the 8th June, if you have raised more than £25 and the money has reached us by 6th June then you will be eligible for the draw.
