Fundraising: The things they do - The river wild

Simon Neenan, an outdoor education teacher, is to paddle his canoe solo from the source of the UK's longest river to the sea to raise funds for tsunami aid. The 220-mile paddle along the River Severn will take Simon, of Atlantic College's Extramural Centre in Wales, from mid-Wales to Gloucestershire. Neenan said: "We all have a contribution to make to society on a local and global scale. It is in the good use of our skills and experience that the greatest power of this contribution can be found." The money will go towards the tsunami fund and will provide scholarships for four young people affected by the disaster to study at the college.
