Story

A big thank you to all our supporters, who have helped us raise over £5,000 for the Mission to Seafarers. The ride itself is this Sunday - let's hope the weather is favorable....

The team consists of:

Lee Adamson, Milton Barón, Christine Billings, Bruce Black, Aubrey Botsford, Olivier Busson, Patricia Charlebois, Mark Combe, Astrid Diespert, Edmund Hughes, Ingrid López, John Mitchell, Sanjay Mondal, Tamara Vassilissin and Andy Winbow.

Piracy, shipwreck, abandonment and separation from loved ones are just a few of the problems merchant seafarers face - as they always have. Today, they may also face arbitrary imprisonment and long periods without shore leave because of immigration and security fears. Around the world, the Mission to Seafarers (www.missiontoseafarers.org) provides help and support to the 1.2 million men and women who face loneliness, discomfort and danger every day to keep our global economy afloat.
