Keiran O’Toole, Adrian Duffy, and George Palmer, all 17, traded dry land for the choppy sea when they spent 24 hours in a life raft at Port Solent this weekend in aid of the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC).

All stocked up and ready to go

The Portsmouth College students decided to take a break from their studies by tackling the tides in an inflatable raft for a full 24-hours.

The trio met early on Saturday 25 January with provisions to last them through the day and night. Equipment for the challenge was kindly donated by sponsors Seago Yachting and Rock Clothing.

11.00am and out to sea

After a short delay, Keiran, Adrian and George made their way out to sea to start their fundraising challenge at 11.00am. Staff from the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity were on hand in the morning along with family members and friends to offer their support.

After 24 hours of riding the tides, the boys completed the challenge, probably looking forward to a warm meal and their own beds!

Thanks to the boys

Congratulations and thank you to Keiran, Adrian and George Palmer for taking on the challenge in the name of the RNRMC.

We would encourage you to show your support by helping the boys reach their £800 fundraising total.
