AwardsSeafarers UK is calling on maritime and marine businesses to enter the 24 Peaks Centenary Challenge in 2017 and raise funds to support seafarers in need.

On 8-9 July the charity’s biggest annual fundraising event will see more than 30 teams of four-six people take on two dozen summits across the Lake District, all over 2,400 feet and completed within 24 hours.

The overall target is for the event to raise at least £100,000, with profits paid in grants to the 100+ organisations supported by Seafarers UK, the charity formed as King George’s Fund for Sailors in 1917.

Participants need to be physically fit, with determination and team spirit, to get them to the finish line. The event culminates in a reception at which awards (see photo) and certificates are presented.

Commodore Barry Bryant CVO RN, Director General of Seafarers UK, said: ‘We expect next summer’s event will be our biggest and best ever, a fitting tribute to 100 years of work supporting seafarers in need, their families and dependants.’
