There are over 350,000 cases of Cancer diagnosed each year. Cancer, in one form or another, will touch ALL of us at some point in our life.

Like many others, cancer has played a part in my life, having lost a parent, sibling and best friend to the disease. What is remarkable is that 99% of the critical work that Macmillan does, is provided by donations.

I have set my goal to raise £101,683 for Macmillan. This will run a Macmillan Cancer Support Centre for 12 months. I will be covering the cost of the boat, equipment and race fees myself, as I want 100% of the money raised to go to Macmillan.

People with cancer still have a life to lead, friends to see, family who need them and people to love.

Macmillan is here to help people living with cancer get on with their lives no matter how cancer affects them. They can give the practical, emotional and genuinely personal support needed to help people hold on to who they are and what’s important to them.

Macmillan can be there during treatment, help with work and money worries and give the time needed to talk about feelings or whatever’s troubling. Whether it’s everyday things like the cost to park at hospital during treatment or big stuff like explaining cancer to children, Macmillan will do all they can to support.

Cancer can be tough. But they’ve helped millions of people through it and they can do the same for more. 

Macmillan are here to help you find your best way through from the moment of diagnosis, so you’re able to live life as fully as you can. For information, support or just someone to talk to, call 0808 808 00 00 or visit


How you can get involved

100% of the money raised will go directly to Macmillan. The cost of the boat, race fees, equipment etc. is being covered by me.

The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge generates significant TV, press and social media coverage so your logo could feature on the boat.

I will also mention my sponsors at every opportunity via my own social media, press coverage and website. For larger sponsors I could make personal appearances at corporate events – and maybe even bring the boat! (subject to availability).

From just £1000 you could have your name, company logo, school, team, or club written on the boat herself and get listed on this website with your photo or logo and any message you wish.
For £10,000 you can name the boat.
