Alex Cannon

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

Alex

Alex Cannon 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 21st March a team of students from Warsash Maritime Academy (part of Southampton Solent University), including Alex, 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.

Alex says:

"I am doing this 24 hour liferaft challenge to give those who are struck with the horrific news that they have cancer the chance to experience the freedom of being out at sea. Those who are diagnosed with cancer need as much happiness in their lives as possible. I believe that if I can contribute my small part in raising some money to make someone smile and laugh, to have one good day, where they can forget about their illness and enjoy themselves out at sea; that I'll have given them something to remember. As a new cadet at Warsash having started and Engineering course in January I feel that this is an appropriate and somewhat unusual way of raising money to help those with cancer."
