We love the idea of bringing together kiting communities across the UK and further afield, kiting together, breaking a World Record and having a festival of kitesurfing that everyone should enjoy. But even more than this, the main reason we organise the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada is to raise funds for 3 fantastic charities: Snow- Camp, Virgin Unite and the RNLI. Kitesurfers participating in the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada last raised over £70,000 for charity collectively through their Virgin Giving pages. Some individuals raised thousands and we were amazed at the way people got behind the event and fundraising side. We feel lucky to be able to kite, and we want to use the opportunity of the Armada to help others too – if you would like to support our fundraising efforts for our three partner charities, you can make an online doantion at Virgin Money Giving . Every donation makes a difference, so whatever you can give, thank you – we are very grateful for your support.
