Picture story: Are you helping people enjoy the great outdoors?

Updated: Oct 2, 2017

Ready for an adventure? The Channel Group offers a range of exhilarating outdoor activities and personal development programmes. Based in Minehead, the Adventure Centre neighbours Exmoor National Park. Whilst admiring the beautiful landscape, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy activities such as kayaking, outdoor swimming, coastal rafting, canoeing and much more. “It’s the California of West Somerset” according to business owner Jim.

The Adventure Centre has activities for all ages and abilities, including The Grom Squad aimed at children aged 8 to 16. A great present or action packed day out for all the family!

The Channel Group has borrowed over £130,000 across multiple loans through Funding Circle since 2015. This allowed them to hire more staff and buy the highest quality equipment to grow their business. In this picture story, see the Channel Group in action and meet Jim:
