Bibby’s Vicki asks for your support in the Loch Ness Challenge

By Mersey Maritime

Vicki Wyllie, an executive assistant at Bibby Line Group, has signed up to take part in a 96km canoe challenge along the Caledonian Canal in aid of the Sailors Society in September.

Known as the Loch Ness Challenge, the event follows the Great Glen Canoe Trail between Fort William and Inverness. There are five boats taking part, from Bibby, Navarino, Lano Pro, Cargill and Tradewinds.

Vicki is asking Mersey Maritime members to support her efforts with sponsorship for the effort which takes place in the first week of September. To support Vicki click here.

Vicki  has been training in readiness for the effort, saying: “I have been hurtling through days of kettle bell classes and Boogie Bounce (Zumba on a trampoline) to get fit.”

Founded 200 years ago, the Sailors Society reaches out to help seafarers at home, in port and at sea transforming lives in seafaring communities with everything from building new homes after disasters such as Typhoon Haiyan, to providing bikes to get to school.
