24-hour life raft challenge
TWENTY-FOUR people have endured the cold and sea sickness to raise funds for a vital charity.
The charity was set up in 2001 by a group of sailors who had lost close friends and relatives to cancer.
It provides nautical-themed respite days and holidays for families affected by cancer.
And 24 people who have been affected by cancer got on board a life raft supplied by Ocean Safety on Friday, only stepping back on dry land 24 hours later.
The charity’s Lizette van Niekerk said: “The feedback we get back from families is that we are like a life raft for them when they are dealing with cancer and its effects, so this is why we did the life raft challenge.
“If anyone else wants to do a life raft challenge, they should get in touch with us by going to our website at sail4cancer.org.”
