Clash of the TITAN
The eighth Joe Way Paddle for Life gets ready for its ‘Sunset Session’ on the beach on Thursday 18th June at Newquay Harbour.
Titan the Robot is coming back to the Newquay event after missing the last two years due to dates clashing with other events.
Titan’s unique blend of comedy, street theatre and music creates a show unrivalled in the world today and has lead him to appear on TV shows such as Big Brother, Daybreak and the Gadget Show as well as popping up at many prestigious events including the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix and the UK premier of iRobot and Real Steel. Titan has also worked alongside superstars including Will.i.am, Rihanna , Will Smith and Jackie Chan and has travelled the world.
Matt Way Joe’s Dad said “we are so lucky to have this global business based in Newquay and the guys have always supported the paddle and other fundraising events we have put on for Joe’s Appeal, we are so excited to have Titan back in his home town at an event he has helped to grow and in turn has raised over £128K in Seven years”.
The annual charity paddle has a great musical sunset session with Headliner Adam Issac who has played many venues and festivals around the UK, supporting widely renowned chart toppers ASH, Toploader, Joss Stone and Sandi Thom. In 2012 Adam made it to the quarter final stages of BBC’s The Voice UK with the legendary Sir Tom Jones as coach.
The line up also includes Newquay’s Steel Appeal who are a 10 piece steel drum band, acoustic sensation Ben Sutcliff, female acoustic singer OCTOBER and Surf Rock Band Beachfield finishing off in the Rowing Club.
The Prize draw has signed books Blue and Sky written by Lisa Glass who will also be at the event, £500 worth of Saltrock vouchers, Lusty Glaze gig tickets, Boardmaster weekend tickets, indo board, Robie Robe Pro and much more.
Paddlers and swimmers ages start from 9 years upwards and the entry fee is £10 per adult, £15 for a team of four for the relays and £5 per child (under 18’s) which is paid on the day with everyone also getting a certificate, free prize ticket and a discount voucher for food. The event is about family fun and everyone helps each other along.
The paddling starts at 4pm and the last registration for a heat is 6pm so there is plenty of time to arrive when people have finished work, the Joe Way memorial RNLI lifeguard race is just after 7pm. Boards are provided with lots of help from Newquay and Lusty Glaze Surf Life Savers so all you need is your wetsuit! Swimmers, SUP’s and canoes are also welcome.
