Paddle board world record attempt to support Mahlale High School, South Africa

Hampton Court House has joined forces with Queen Mary Sailing Club to organise an attempt to break the world record for stand-up paddle boarding to raise funds for a new school in South Africa.

The Super Mile event on Saturday 18 June aims to break the world record for biggest mass-participation stand-up paddle board relay, which currently stands at 264. The event is raising funds for Africa Foundation’s project to build a new science and technology classroom at Mahlale High School in South Africa.

We need your support. Participation costs only £2. All the sponsorship money you raise will go directly towards the project in South Africa. No previous experience or special equipment are needed. There will also be food, drink and entertainment on the day.

The project in South Africa

We are raising funds to build a science laboratory, library and computer centre at Mahlahle High School, Welverdiend, South Africa. The local community has identified a genuine need: there are resources available to staff and to run the expanded school.

All your sponsorship funds from the Super Mile world record attempt will go directly to the project: Africa Foundation has no paid staff in the UK; everyone is a volunteer, so every penny is used directly on the ground.
