Charities We’re Supporting
On the Atlantic Ocean Adam decided to jump ship from Emergency Medicine to a career in Palliative Care and has been working at Weston Hospicecare since August 2022.
The hospice won 'Charity of the Year 2023' from the Great British Awards and provides expert palliative care to people with life-limiting illnesses in Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset. It exists to bring peace to adults who are experiencing physical and emotional pain as a result of their illness with an ethos of bringing life to days. It costs around £5,000,000 a year to deliver the services, 80% of which comes from charitable support.
Adam and Charlie aim to raise £10,000 for the hospice to develop the ten inpatient bedrooms which are in desperate need of refurbishment. Your donations will go towards this project and have an instant impact on the care and quality of life for the hospice inpatients.
Our time spent on the Ocean during our Atlantic and Around GB rows forged a connection between us and the ocean and it was really important to us both that one of our chosen charities focused on ocean conservation.
We were drawn to the Ocean Conservation Trust from their ethos of wanting to connect people with the ocean - 'to protect nature, you need to start with people'. They are a Devon based global conservation charity working towards a vision of a healthy ocean, which is vital for a healthy planet.
We are aiming to raise £10,000 to support their ocean experiences encouraging behaviour change and ocean advocacy alongside habitat restoration projects.
