    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Shipmates - the Caribbean was our playground!!

    We all loved the laid back culture, friendly locals and beautiful beaches and boy did we eat, drink and party there! It's time to repay that hospitality a little and dig deep to give help on these fabulous islands that gave us such great memories. Much help is obviously going to be needed by lots of people who have lost so much following Hurricane Irma. If we can all give even just a couple of pounds or dollars our shipmates community can raise a massive amount and make a real difference. The money raised will go to a leading charity directly involved in on the ground relief in the Caribbean islands - maybe the Red Cross, Oxfam, or another disaster relief organization. Rest assured, I will be doing my research to ensure it goes where it's needed.

    So please, please join me in donating what you can and let's do this together. And don't forget to share with shipmates, friends and family on Facebook to encourage even more donations.

    Thank you

      I have been in contact with the Halo Foundation who work alongside the Antigua and Barbuda Red Cross and we have decided to use the money donated to buy toys for the children of Barbuda. The children have been sent to Antigua until Barbuda is habitable again, which may be some time, and they are being housed in public shelters or with local families. A toy for them at this distressing time will mean a great deal to them. I hope everyone who has donated is happy with this 😊 and I will share photos of the toy handover when I receive them.

    I was lucky enough to work on CCL and HAL ships from 1993 to 1998 and spent much of my time on the beautiful Caribbean islands. I really wanted to do something to help the islanders after the devastating Hurricane Irma and I hope I can encourage others to give a little too.
