The Cornish sun shone on brave ocean adventurers for Newquay Activity Centre’s Charity Coasteer which took place on Sunday.
The swell provided a fun coasteer, guided by the expert coasteering team at Newquay Activity Centre. The group all took part to raise money for Izzy Pearce who has Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegi and needs a life changing operation, which will enable her to walk and dance with her twin sister.
The adventurous coasteering group jumped into the sea off Newquay Headland and swam into a rock pool before, jumping off a rock and swimming into the nearby ‘Tea Cavern’ cave. The group experienced all aspects of a coasteer, scrambling, caving, low level climbing and were often accompanied by Sammy the Seal! Izzy’s parents Michael and Ursula Pearce also joined the coasteer and were thrilled with the groups’ participation. They thanked the group on their coasteer and fundraising success!
Newquay Activity Centre’s Director, Rob Barber said;
“It was a great event and I am so pleased that people joined in and got to experience a winter coasteer. Everyone had a great time and with our toasty warm wetsuits everyone was amazed that they didn’t get cold! The group enjoyed experiencing something new whilst raising funds for this incredibly important cause. The sponsorship money is still rolling in but we hope to have collected £1000 by the end of the week. Thank you also to my coasteering team of instructors who delivered a fantastic experience and to Mike and Ursula for being great ocean adventurers and joining in with us too!”
