Help Needed, London Marathon 18th April

Anybody fancy a day out?
On the Thames?
Doing a good deed for a charity?

St Dunstan's, a charity we do a look of work with, have a number of people running in the event to raise funds.

For those who have never heard of them they provide rehabilitation for blind ex service men/woman. This inc civil emergency service's.

If any of you have seen the stuff in the boat mag's recently about a guy called Mark Therdgold, he is a St Dunstaner.
Speed record Lake Windermere.

They are planing to hold a reciption on HMS Belfast for them all.
This will inc the press.

They have a 6.2 Humber Ocean Pro but need more boats.
Maybe another 2/3.

If your interested please let me know.

Cheers in advance

Could be Jon,

What sort of thing are you after? What's the plan for the day?

I have a 7.5m Ribeye Sports, seating for 8 (inc Skip), not currently Coded.

PM me if I could be of some use.

Helping Out on the Thames

Hi Jon,

As an ex squadie I am very much aware of the work St Dunstan's do. If I can help in any way, it would be a pleasure.

Could you post some more details of what you require for your day.

My boat is not coded for fare paying passengers.

Best wishes

If they are not fare paying passengers and the owner is not receiving any payment in relation to fuel or time etc then it is not a commercial operation so Coding is not necessary.
Sorry I can't help but good luck with the event.

thank you one and all

Thank you for all the offers.

The PofA is as follows.

Rib's will swan around on the Thames.
I have a tucked up launch site near Putney Bridge.
One of the guy's helping knows the owners very well.

At the end of the race the idea is to collect those who have run for St Dunstan's, supporters and staff from somewhere near St James Park.
These peolple are then ferried to the HMS Belfast for bit of a thank you party.
All Rib crews will be invited too.

We would intend to put an experienced "blind friendly" crew member on each boat if needed.

Also will have crews on each jetty we use so there will be plenty of hands on help.

One of the guy's helping is a very nice Army Major, top bloke, good laugh and very good with a Rib. I have worked with him loads of times and he is very switched.
Also think he is one of the youngest Army Major's.

We have just found a minor problem, Thames are not happy with us doing this as they have a rule that if you carry passangers you have to be a registared vessel and a Thames boat man!!!
God knows why if they are not paying and are part of the charity.

We will be working on this next week.

Thanks again for all the offers, | will keep you all posted.

Regards
