Every time I turn on the telly I am confronted by the suffering of children. It’s not only those fleeing the violence in Syria, but kids are being displaced everywhere, and often becoming lost or orphaned in the process.
That’s why we have decided to turn our summer sailing trip from Arzal to La Rochelle (a round trip of approx. 300 miles) into a sponsored challenge. We’re starting on July 24th. and returning to Arzal by September 1st. so you can donate right now and throughout August if you feel so inclined. here’s the link: http://www.justgiving.com/LaRochelleChallenge Any money you donate goes straight to Save the Children, an organisation uniquely equipped to make things better for these kids, many of whom will be severely traumatised for a long, long time, and desperately need our support.
We’ll be posting updates whenever I can get a wifi connection on the boat, on this page, Facebook, Twitter and my JustGiving page, to let everyone know how we are getting on.
According to JustGiving, donating through them is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Thanks for listening…
