It’s been a busy week at the SofaToSailboat project. I have been busy speaking to our charities, suppliers and measuring up ‘Poppet’ our Leisure 17 for various bits and parts.
The highlight so far this week was a visit to the MS-UK charity headquarters in Colchester. MS-UK is one the charities that we are raising funds in aid of. I met their fundraising team and had a tour of their wonderful facility to learn more about what they do and how they help suffers of Multiple sclerosis (MS).
MS-UK is a national charity that was in formed 1993. They are there for people affected by multiple sclerosis – that’s around 130,000 people in the UK or one in every 500, with about 130 people diagnosed every week on average.
To learn more about MS-UK please visit their website www.ms-uk.org.
SofaToSailboat will be sailing 3000-miles across the Atlantic ocean in a tiny 17ft sailboat to raise money in aid of MS-UK and other selected charities. Please consider donating to them directly via our fundraising page CLICK HERE.
