To mark his upcoming 60th birthday, property manager Marc Sidney has now completed a most impressive sailing challenge – crossing the North Atlantic from Newfoundland to the Isle of Wight. He has done this to raise money for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care and North London Hospice.
Marc was a member of an eight-man crew that set sail from St John’s, Newfoundland on 23rd July 2022. Eleven days later, on 3rd August, after a journey of 1900 nautical miles, they arrived at Cowes, on the Isle of Wight. Before setting out, Marc described this personal challenge as “the optimal test of my mental and physical strength” – and there can be little doubt that this turned out to be true.
Please visit Marc’s fundraising page and donate generously to acknowledge the huge challenge he has taken part in and help him to support Cherry Lodge Cancer Care and North London Hospice – two charities he has described as being “very close to my heart”.
On 4th August, Marc’s fundraising total stood at £6,422.50 (plus £1,212,50 Gift Aid). Might you be able to take it even highter?
