My story

[p][br][/p][p][b]London Marathon - October 2021[/b][/p][p]I am married to a Trawlerman and we have two Under 10 metre inshore boats that fish out of Brixham. We are a fishing family with two generations fishing, father and son. Due to the Covid19 restrictions to help out at home, I am joining the fishing family at sea, potting with traditionally made lobster pots created from willow. These are called "withy pots". [/p][p]I am not a natural runner and found the London Marathon I completed two years ago for Seafarers UK very difficult and I am sure that this year, with the restriction on outside movement, will be even harder. It will be nothing compared to the difficulties and worry that many inshore fishermen are currently facing with the inability to sell their catch due to lower prices and a market place that has collapsed for many due to restricted movement of landings. [/p][p]Please give generously to my Virgin Money Giving page to support all Seafarers around the UK who were navigating difficult waters as it is with all that comes with Brexit, without the now very real prospects of exceptional hardship through the inability to sell the fish that they catch. We are in unchartered waters from an industry perspective and whilst we are to a certain extent all in the same boat (excuse the pun), the outlook for the fishermen at this point of time for the smaller inshore fleet looks particularly precarious.[/p][p]Fishing is the most hazardous job in peacetime. Charities such as SeafarersUK cascade funds down to the smaller charities, who need support to pick up the pieces and assist fishing families who are facing exceptional financial hardship, or worse - the loss of a loved one. [/p][p]Please give generously to Seafarers UK to enable them to support those within the industry who need the assistance the most. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you.
