Ben Lawrence

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

Ben Lawrence

Ben Lawrence from the Warsash Maritime Academy is preparing to brave the elements and experience what every sailor hopes they NEVER have to do for real - spend 24 hours in a liferaft.

On Friday 11th March a team of students from Warsash Maritime Academy (part of Southampton Solent University), including Ben, will clamber into their raft and commence learning at first hand just what it would be like to be cast adrift as their boat sinks behind them. But this challenge is not only a chance to enhance their studies, but a great opportunity to raise funds and awareness for those whose difficult times will last a great deal longer than 24 hours - UK families living with cancer.

Ben says:

“I’ve decided to take on this challenge to do my bit towards raising money for a charity that means a lot to me having lost family due to cancer. It was a difficult time for the family but I am determined to help all I can to help raise money so that in the future other families don’t have to go through the same thing.”
