Mitchell Dixon

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

Mitchell Dixon

Mitchell Dixon 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 Mitchell, 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.

Mitchell says:

“I enjoy raising money for charity and want to challenge myself at the same time. I also think it is a good way to raise money as it is quite a tough thing to do!”
