We want to tell you about Positive Waves, it’s a community project in Newquay which aims to transform people’s lives, through the power of the ocean. Newquay Activity Centre is supporting Positive Waves wholeheartedly, and we want to help spread the word about this amazing cause.
Positive Waves is a Pay It Forward campaign focused around the ocean; it’s about harnessing the energy and the physical and mental health benefits we get when we spend time in the water, and paying these opportunities forward to those who need them most.
There are many people in Cornwall who don’t have access to the ocean due to chronic health conditions, physical limitations or impairments, lack of confidence, social constraints or psychological barriers. Positive Waves aims to make the ocean more accessible for people and to help them grow in confidence, resilience and self-belief.
Positive Waves will be running a Crowdfunder campaign throughout this summer, which will see 100% of the donations go towards delivering valuable, personalised and impactful sessions: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/positivewaves
Positive Waves says “Our belief is that people will be energised by their experience in the ocean, and that this mind and body reset has the potential to lead to personal growth and self development. We want to help people find a way to access and engage with the ocean; through supportive ocean sessions we’ll focus on building confidence and guiding them on a personal journey, taking time to gain independence, learn skills & feel more at ease in the water”
If you’ve already discovered the buzz of being in the water, or if the ocean has worked its healing magic on you, then Newquay Activity Centre asks you to please pay it forward. Every contribution to this amazing crowdfund helps, even just the price of a coffee can make a huge difference, it all adds up.
This is a chance to lift people up on a wave of kindness and generosity, to give the gift of ocean adventure, and be part of a community movement that has the potential to transform lives.
Together we can make a huge difference.
