A couple of days ago we had a visit from Lindsey Noble. Lindsey is currently the principal at Southampton City College.
Lindsey described to us her challenge of a lifetime.
In 5 months from now, in mid August 2013, Lindsey will be taking part in the Clipper 13-14 Round the World Race. 12 Identical 70ft yachts leave the shores of the UK to begin the 40,000 mile circumnavigation. The race will cover 40,000-miles, visit six continents in 15 stopovers during the eleven-month challenge. Lindsey will experience some of the most challenging seas and weather conditions possible.
This major global event has an audience in excess of half a billion people in more than 200 countries.
As part of this challenge Lindsey wants to raise money for two charities. We were very excited to learn that one of these is No Limits. She chose No Limits because they give great holistic support, help and advice to the young people in the Southampton area, particularly those that are vulnerable or disadvantaged. Last year they supported over 5,000 young people with a whole variety of issues. In her role as head of Southampton City College she saw first hand how essential it was to get young people back on track when they are in turmoil though no fault of their own and to provide first class preventative work so young people do not fall into crime, become involved with substance misuse or become homeless. There is much more about No Limits at http://www.nolimitshelp.org.uk
No Limits will also be setting up a special donation page for those that want to support Lindsey and the work of No Limits. Our current donation page is at http://www.everyclick.com/nolimitshelp/info
