He Embarked on a 8 week paddle journey along 1800km of the Amazon to Iquitos, taking on intense rapids and endurance distances.

Mental Health

Charlie set out to paddle the entire coastline of England and Wales. Dedicated to learning about Mental health. With no cash, he relied on the generosity of supporters and the kindness of strangers. The 5 months social experiment forced Charlie to interact with people to learn about mental state and ask for help. He blogged his lessons, some on social and some for private individuals that gave him a intimate insight into the mind and the power to thrive. mind.org.uk
