A maritime welfare charity is calling on people from the shipping industry to get involved with its new Loch Ness challenge event on September 6-10 , 2018.

Sailors’ Society, which supports seafarers and their families around the world, is looking for people to canoe almost 60 miles of the Great Glen and raise funds for its work.

The charity, which celebrated its 200th anniversary in March, transforms the lives of seafarers and their families at home, in port and at sea through initiatives such as its Wellness at Sea coaching programme and Crisis Response Network.

Its chaplains and ship visitors have a presence in 91 global ports, with wider projects and services covering 30 countries.

“Our chaplains provide a variety of services to seafarers; whether it’s practical help like a lift to the shops, access to Wi-Fi so they can talk to loved ones or emotional support after a crisis such as piracy, abandonment or imprisonment, they do inspirational work," said Rebecca Bridgen, who is running the event for Sailors’ Society, and has decided to take part herself. "I’ve never stepped in a canoe before but am looking forward to the challenge!"
