AMI Marine Ltd have signed up to take part in Seafarers UK ‘24 Peaks Challenge’
We are delighted to be taking up this amazing challenge in aid of Seafarers UK.
The challenge is to climb 24 peaks in the Lake District, all over 2,400 feet, in 24 hours.
The course is 31 miles long and includes Scafell Pike, the highest peak in England. Over two days the teams will take in some of the most stunning countryside in Cumbria, including rivers, moorland, farms and forest. We have started our training in preparation of this gruelling challenge. We will be pushing ourselves both physically and mentally – we have an amazing team and know we can do this!!
Seafarers UK are a charity that has been helping people in the maritime community for 100 years, by providing vital funding to support seafarers in need and their families, and to those in education or training who are preparing to work at sea. They do this by giving money to organisations and projects that make a real difference to people’s lives, across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
Our team is being headed up by one of our company Director’s, Martin Cox. He has also successfully managed to rope his wife Candice into the team.
Our Sales Support Manager Lauren Mudliar is joining the team along with our International Service Manager Martin Grigg. From our team of Engineers we have Tom Hayden. Also joining the team is former employee Greg Speed, who loves us so much he wants to spend 2 days on a mountain with us! Supporting the team from the foot of the hills is our Sales & Marketing Administrator Lucy Speed.
Martin Cox has added his positive enthusiasm “The (AMI) team is totally up for this challenge, we can’t wait – we are going to smash this challenge and will probably set a world record! In all seriousness, this is a great charity and we are so glad to be raising money for the excellent work they do. The marine industry is where we trade and we are very proud to be supporting Seafarers UK.”
