Singer song writer James Morrison and his brother Laurie have been long term supports of the Joe Way appeal.
James has helped lift the profile of the annual celebration of Joe's story which has raised tens of thousands of pounds for worthy causes.
James made time to shoot a video message of support whilst on tour in the UK and with his new album out, "Higher Than Here", it's going to be another busy year for Cornwall's international star.
Matt Way, Joe’s dad, said; “This support has helped us so much with reaching more people with Joe's story, as a family it is a great comfort to know that people from all walks of life are taking a moment to think about Joe, what his story means and to remember him even when they have not met him”.
Matt continued; “We are the only FREE music gig which is held in the harbour and the paddle is all about the community coming together, celebrating Joe’s story, raising money for over 20 great causes and showcasing the Newquay spirit. As a family we are very proud of how the town has made this event so special”.
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 Surf life saving Cornwall along with Newquay and Lusty Glaze Surf Life Savers so all you need is your wetsuit! Swimmers, SUP’s and canoes are also welcome.
