Glenn Higginbotham & Bear Henry Allen

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

Henry & Glenn

Glenn Higginbotham & Bear Henry Allen from the Warsash Maritime Academy are 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 Glenn & Bear Henry, 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.

Glenn says:

"As a Phase 3 Cadet sponsored by Maersk I know that 24 hours in a liferaft will be a tough challenge, and one I hope never happens to me for real at sea. Having lost a close family friend, Henry Allen, to cancer in October 2013 at only 4 years of age, I know the profound effects that cancer can have on families. Fortunately the Merchant Navy Bears allowed us to donate and name one of the bears in his name to allow family and friends of Henry Allen to follow his adventures around the world and to raise awareness of childhood cancers, which is why he is doing his cadetship with me and is sponsored by Maersk. I know he will be really excited that I volunteered us both for this challenge. You can find his full story on Facebook."

Bear Henry Allen says:

Where he goes, I go - unfortunately this time! WHO VOLUNTEERED ME FOR THIS? Glenn? That boy needs a serious slap! In all honesty I know how much families need help and support when someone has cancer and this is my first chance to help families living with cancer. I know how much help Henry's family needed, and got, throughout his short life. It will be fantastic knowing that I helped raise money for other families fighting this dreadful disease for once. Now GIVE ME YOUR HONEY - Sorry, I meant - MONEY! Now, where are my waterproofs?

Thank you for sponsoring us - we will make you proud of us
