19 Sep Turn to Starboard selected as Charity recipients
For the second year running ‘Turn to Starboard’ was selected as one of the Charity recipients from the proceeds raised at the 2018 Superyacht Charity Foundation Black Tie ball held at the Ageas Hilton in Southampton on the 24th March 2018. The ball was attended by over 520 industry related colleagues who helped to raise almost £73,000 through sponsorship, seat bookings, raffle and auction.
A cheque for £24,333.33 was presented to the Turn to Starboard CEO Shaun Pascoe by the SYC Chairman Derek Munro with the assistance of Trustee David Goldie and Charity Ambassador Liam Dobbin. Many Turn to Starboard charity beneficiaries were in attendance as the presentation coincided with their 3 day sailing regatta run from Haslar Marina in Gosport. Derek, David and Liam took the opportunity to speak to some of the beneficiaries which was a humbling experience as all of them are either physically or mentally injured ex service personnel with some harrowing stories.
