Team story

[p]The Loadstar team of scribblers is in strict and painful training to take on the 24 Peaks challenge in the Lake District in early July.[/p][p]It is no walk in the park! We will be taking on the 24 peaks, all over 2,400 ft, in 24 hours hiking time, covering some 31 miles.[/p][p]We are shaping ourselves into some sort of condition so as not to fail. We are going through the pain barrier for a great cause - Seafarers UK - but we need your support![/p][p]Seafarers are the unsung heroes of globalisation. 90% of the world's trade moves by sea but it is the mariners that spend a good percentage of their lives on board ships that make it all happen. Think about that when you next hear the wind howling and the rain lashing down - and how you would feel to be away from your families for months on end, missing your children growing up and often unable to see friends and family at birthdays and at Christmas. [/p][p]Seafarers UK has been helping people in the maritime community for over 100 years, by providing vital support to seafarers in need and their families, and to those in education or training who are preparing to work or serve at sea.[/p][p]Please help us to help them help seafarers by donating to our page.[/p][p][br][/p]
