PoL feature on the BBC’s Inside Out (Northwest)

Exciting POL news!!

A few weeks ago, POL were lucky enough to be visited by producer and director Paul Craven of the BBC Inside Out team, who filmed a typical POL pink paddle, and interviewed POL’s lovely founder, Eve Elliot-Pearson. The filming was for an episode of Inside Out focusing on Dragon Boating, and the positive mental and physical effects the sport can have on those living with and recovering from Breast Cancer.

Jacey Normand meets the breast cancer survivors who have taken up dragon boat paddling as a unique way of healing both physically and emotionally.
