The TENTH Joe Way Paddle for Life gets ready for its ‘Sunset Session’ on the beach on Thursday 22nd June at Newquay Harbour.
Local boy Joe was born with a rare genetic condition and died on the 7th May 2008 aged 4. He had been labelled a miracle boy after surviving meningitis, a potentially deadly skin reaction SJS, numerous superbugs but finally died of complete organ failure after suffering from Steven Johnson Syndrome for a second time.
Since his death his parents have campaigned tirelessly to raise money for over 20 causes in his name, raising more than £139,000.
The Paddle for Life in partnership with Newquay Towan Blystra Lions Club and Surf Life Saving Cornwall raises money from the paddlers entry money, food stalls, drink sales at the rowing club and the prize draw raffle.
Matt Way, Joe’s dad, said; “We are looking forward to the live music this year as the event keeps getting bigger, we are so grateful for the business support that we have and the bands all playing for free to entertain the town”.
The annual charity paddle has a great musical sunset session with “Steel Appeal” who are back, this 10 piece Caribbean style steel band really create the beach vibe and kick this year’s Sunset sessions off.

Daisy will mesmerise everyone with her stunning voice and has appeared on National TV and radio so this has been a great time to have Daisy on board as her career gets off the ground.
The “Blues Brothers On The Run” are hitting the Paddle for the first time, Lee Quinny has performed several times over the years for Joe’s Paddle, so get ready for these guys to explode into the crowd and get everyone going.

As a family we are very proud of how the town has made this event so special”.
