Dig out your finest festive fancy dress out fit and join likeminded people and Alfresco Adventures on our stand up paddle boarding (SUP) Santa Social event on the River Ure at Boroughbridge.

Alfresco Adventures is all about getting people out in to the great outdoors in the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District; fun, educational and safe outdoor adventure experiences.

We have recently wanted as a company to do something for charity; so with stand up paddle boarding been the fastest growing water sport in the UK (and world). We have decided to do a stand up paddle boarding social event this Christmas period.

Starting from our office at Boroughbridge Marina we aim to have a journey for a couple of hours up and down on the river. We can share paddling stories, laugh, joke and get in to the festive spirit. Getting of the water we will have free mince pies and mulled punch for all those that have taken part.

We have two options:

1) If you have your own paddle board, wetsuit and buoyancy aid, we are asking for a minimum donation of £5 and 100% of that will go to Crisis.

2) You can hire a board from us, with wetsuit and buoyancy aid for £18 per person. On top of that is the £5 charity donation to Crisis.
