Matthew Lawrence

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

Matthew Lawrence

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

Matthew says:

"I am a 20 year old Deck Cadet from Cheshire. I am currently studying at Warsash Maritime Academy under the sponsorship of Trinity House. I hope that through this challenge I am not only able to gain valuable experience in a piece of equipment that may save mine and my fellow seafarer's lives one day, but to also help raise awareness and money for a worthwhile charity that helps the sufferers of cancer. It is a disease which affects so many lives and having an organisation such as Sail 4 Cancer that give sufferers a chance to forget about their illness and to experience once in a life time opportunities is priceless. "
