Dear friends, colleagues, readers,
In just two weeks, The Loadstar team will undertake the 24-Peak Challenge on behalf of Seafarers UK – and we need to raise a total of £4,000.
We are about 40% of the way there, thanks to DHL, Xeneta, Impress Communications, Actualis, Steve Walker Global and Hedging Beta, as well as many kind individuals from the freight industry.
But – that leaves more than £2,000 to raise.
It’s a great charity, and any company that relies on the sea should care about the well-being of sailors, many of whom are mistreated, and their long-suffering families.
And this challenge is not easy. The team has pledged to climb 24 peaks in the Lake District, all over 2,400 feet, including England’s highest peak, Scarfell Pike, in just 24 hours.
Please help us to help the seafaring community. You’ll be publicly thanked with a logo on the website and on our popular daily bulletin, and you’ll feel warm in the knowledge that you have supported a good charity.
You can donate here – and we’ll get in touch to get your logo, (or just take it from your website if you’d prefer).
Please help us beat other teams – which include the world’s biggest container line – to the sponsorship finishing post!
The Loadstar team comprises Arabella Tancred, managing director (50), and her husband Ian (53), Mike Wackett, sea freight consultant (67), Gavin van Marle, managing editor (45), and Alex Whiteman, reporter (32).
