INTERTANKO and OCIMF working together to support seafarers

INTERTANKO and OCIMF are working together again with a combined team which took part in the Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for the Sailors' Society.


The team – Ajay Gour, Bernard Lesegretain and Philip Pascoe – completed the challenge in 22 hours coming in 9th out of 40 teams that took part in the event raising more money than they ever dared hope to.


To celebrate the Year of the Seafarer, the team has raised nearly ten thousand pounds through the incredible support of members from both organisations and from private donations of people working in the industry, as well as many personal contacts of the team members.


The generosity shown by all who have donated has been very heart-warming and we take this opportunity to convey a huge "Thank You" to everybody.


Money is still being raised and you can still donate by going to the INTERTANKO/OCIMF "just-giving" webpage and clicking on the "Donate Now" button following the instructions thereafter. All and any donations are welcome.


See below the team (l-r: Philip, Ajay & Bernard) tired and relieved on the summit of Mount Snowdon – their last climb. It was all downhill from there (a 13 mile run to the finish). You can click here to see more pictures.
