Sign up for the Professional Services Association Charity and Conservation Coastal Walk
1 May 2024

The British Marine Professional Services Association invites you to a wonderful day this 4 July, for a sponsored walk along the fantastic Lymington coast. Not only will you be raising funds for a charity that does amazing work in our industry, but you will be helping to protect our treasured coastline and enhancing your knowledge of marine conservation.

We are supporting the Andrew Simpson Foundation whose mission is to transform lives through sailing. Andrew Simpson MBE died too early at the age of 36, in an accident on board the Artemis AC72 yacht in San Francisco Bay. Andrew, better known as ‘Bart’ to many in the sailing world, was a fine, accomplished sailor, a loving family man and an inspiration to many. Sailing was his passion as well as his profession. Today, the Andrew Simpson Foundation honours his memory by opening up the world of sailing and water sports to people, particularly young people, from all walks of life, changing lives, creating career pathways and providing opportunities that last a lifetime. We couldn't think of a better cause to support and if every walker raises just £150, this will equate to over £10,000 for the charity!

We are delighted to be teaming up with UOCEAN which advocates for environmental issues through community engagement, PR campaigns and actively involving ethnic minority and underrepresented communities, empowering them to engage in conservation to protect the future of our oceans. They are a non-profit charity based in the United Kingdom whose primary mission is to combat canal, river and ocean plastics and restore marine ecosystems partnering with minority and stigmatised communities. We will all benefit from their knowledge and insight into conservation throughout the day and clear any litter we find on our way!

The event will finish at Lymington Yacht Haven where we will celebrate together, enjoying a drink or three, networking and strengthening connections with newly made friends and acquaintances from across the marine industry. A food truck will also be on hand to feed those well-built appetites!
