As a Foundation we have chosen a variety of charities that are very close to our hearts.
There are so many worthy causes to support, but we feel strongly about the ones we have selected. Oceana UK is an environmental cause that looks at ocean conservation. Much of our business involves transporting vessels and freight across oceans, and many of our team are lovers of the sea – boaters, windsurfers and swimmers so taking care of this fragile environment is important.
As parents and grand-parents (and once youngsters ourselves) we value the importance of education for young people. We also appreciate how fortunate we are to be able to get out on the water and realise the tonic it provides through teamwork and teambuilding. The Teen Marine charity delivers this.
Sadly, cancer is a disease that cruelly touches many of us – either personally or through those we love. So we have chosen two cancer charities, The Breast Unit within St Margaret’s Hospital in Essex, England and the wonderful Cancer Research UK.
