Thomas Jones

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

Thomas Jones

Thomas Jones 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 Thomas, 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.

Thomas says:

"I am 20 years old, from London and in my first year at Warsash, training as a Cadet Engineering Officer with Maersk Line. I have decided to take part in the Liferaft Challenge in an attempt to raise some money to help with the struggle towards fighting Cancer. Cancer affects many people, if you do not know someone that has suffered from it, a relative or friend does! I lost my mother back in 2013 to cancer, so any little I can give I will, this challenge being a part of that!"
