Since today is Christmas Eve, and Megayacht News will be on hiatus until Monday, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season. The spirit of Christmas is one I think we all can appreciate, no matter what our religious beliefs. May good health and good fortune be yours in 2009, too.
In honor of that spirit, I’m sharing this request from Sally Haynes of Tim Haynes Limited.
Tom Napper, one of our lovely rigging technicians, is planning to paddle down the Danube next year in aid of Cancer Research Trust and the Cornish Hospices. THL will be helping him as much as we can, and we hope you will too.
Having had a little boy, Jamie, who died of cancer aged only three years old, I know how important hospices and their very special nurses are to all sorts of people, old and young, and not only those with the illness but their families, friends and carers too. If you can help in any way, either by donating money, as a sponsor and/or donating specific items the expedition will need, please do not hesitate to contact me by email [email protected] and I will pass all replies on to Tom – or action them if he is too busy rigging!
More specifics on Napper’s trip are at this Web site.
