Dr Russell and her canoe

Good luck and best wishes to Dr Sarah Russell and her husband who will have a very busy Easter holiday taking part in the Devises to Westminster International Canoe Race.  They are raising funds for  Devon Air Ambulance Trust.     If you would like to show your support and generosity you can do so online at or text JRSR99 £5 to 70070

The Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race starts in Devizes, Wiltshire and finishing just downstream of Westminster Bridge in central London, opposite the Houses of Parliament. The race has been held annually over the Easter Weekend since 1948.
The race is 125 miles long and has 77 portages. The first 52 miles are along the Kennet and Avon Canal to Reading, the next 55 miles are on the River Thames to Teddington. The final 17 mile section is on the tidal portion of the Thames.
The race is a severe test of skill, physical and mental stamina and planning which produces a memorable sense of achievement for those successfully completing it.  To find out more go to

Devon Air Ambulance Trust raises funds to keep two helicopters flying in Devon. Independent of Government funding, operating costs of the service are met by public fundraising/donations. Paramedics provided by South Western Ambulance Services NHS Foundation Trust, supported in part by the Charity.
