Day 77 - Orchid guest blog

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

We¬†are so thrilled that Guy and Andrew have taken on this incredible challenge in aid of Orchid. Orchid is¬†the UK’s leading charity existing to save men’s lives from testicular, prostate and penile cancers through pioneering research and promoting awareness.

When the call came through and the boys said they were going to take on ‘the world’s toughest ocean rowing race’ in aid of Orchid we felt very honoured. Having spent some time learning more about it, what we learnt was overwhelming, that this would involve over three months of rowing 3,780 nautical miles, across treacherous water and weather systems.

We have been following the guys and cannot believe how well they seem to be coping and doing. We are really looking forward to welcoming them back to the Orchid office and hearing about all their tales at sea.

Once again we cannot thank the boys enough for their continued support and raising funds for Orchid. Not only is this a once in a lifetime challenge but they are doing it for an amazing cause.

Take care and we hope you enjoy the last bit of your trip. Wishing you lots of luck and a safe arrival home.

Caz and the Orchid team out.
