James Cumming

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

james cumming

James Cumming from Southampton Solent University 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 the Warsash Maritime Academy and Solent University, including James, 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.

James says:

“I have known both family members and friends who have been affected by or had cancer themselves, so I feel that this is an important opportunity to raise awareness and funding for something that no one should have to experience. However, at the same time I get to experience something that hopefully I won’t ever have to do for real, whilst making a difference for others.”
