Thanks to the efforts of 442 registered participants the 2015 Virgin Kitesurfing Armada, which took place on the weekend of 17th/18th October, raised an incredible £30,690, bringing the total raised to over £150,000 since the annual event was first held in 2013.
Contributing to the grand total was this years’ top fundraiser, Andy Pope, who raised £2,250, closely followed by Martin Stocks with a total of £2,214 for the four event charities: Virgin Unite, the RNLI, youth charity Snow-Camp, and rescue charity Serve On.
Event Director, Dan Charlish commented; “It’s been another phenomenal effort from the kitesurfing community. We’re delighted to have passed the £150,000 mark over three years, which makes a massive difference to the fantastic causes we support. We know it’s difficult to fundraise and we really appreciate everyone’s effort and willingness to get involved in this important part of the event.”
