Here at 20SixLtd we're renowned for being one of the South East's top commercial property and office fit out companies - but it's not all work for the crew. We actively participate in as many community events as we can and support local charities that our close to our heart.
Our latest could-not-turn-this-one-down event is to sponsor the boat being rowed by two former Royal Marines. This isn't a little jolly down the Thames for a summer picnic in Henley though - no, these guys are taking on the challenge of a lifetime rowing unaided from Monterey, California to Honolulu, Hawaii in the Great Pacific Race. As if this wasn't enough of a challenge, one half of the team is attempting to be the first blind person ever to row the Pacific.
Steve Sparkes and Mick Dawson are hoping to raise £10,000.00 for their chosen charities, Blind Veterans UK and The Royal Marines Charity, and are on target to do so.
Quite apart from being an epic journey for these guys, 20SixLtd were proud to be part of the sponsors of Steve and Mick's boat, the Bojangles, as we have worked closely with Blind Veterans UK in Ovingdean over the past few years. We have supplied furniture and have helped them with their office design and fit out work.
We're looking forward to following the race from afar by keeping up with the team's online updates, of which we shall share the links to below. We would also be really chuffed if you could help the guys out and so are also sharing their Just Giving Page link below, just in case you have a spare few pennies that you can send their way.
We wish both Steve and Mick all the best and hope to share more on their adventure once they have arrived safely back in the UK.
