A mother of two disabled twin boys is aiming to kayak around 13 lakes in 48 hours to raise money for a respite centre in west Cumbria. Dawn Raynor from Moor Row has two teenage boys who suffer from tuberous sclerosis, which causes them to have several fits every day.
Dawn says their closest respite centre is 20 miles away and is only open three days a week. She wants to raise £1 million to open a respite centre to give parents and disabled children a break. She's hoping to raise thousands of pounds by completing the challenge on September 8th and 9th.
