In memory of Clare Allen Jon De Vries
We fund care, campaigning and research to achieve a world free from MND


Clare and Jon loved the outdoor life, spending their life's energies to protect and regenerate it. They worked everywhere from the Antarctic to Stephen's Island Tuatara Sanctuary, they planted trees, preserved habitats. Clare was also a gifted teacher working to inspire the young in mathematics and in horticulture. To remember their spirit, we choose to adventure and, if possible, raise awareness and money for the insidious diseases that took them too soon. Clare died of Motor Neurone Disease and Jon Cancer, within 18 months of each other. They were 58 years old.

Andy will be circumnavigating the earth taking 11 months to complete his adventure. Katrina will sail across the Atlantic, on leg one only (but that is bound to be quite enough). This is no smooth cruise but a challenging, difficult, exhausting venture where we will experience all that the sea has to throw at us in a tight, racing yacht filled with amateurs and one professional skipper. It is not for the faint hearted!
