Elaine held a lunch function for our over-50s-club at the Clovelly Country Club today.
One of our Brand Ambassadors, Greg Bertish, spoke most movingly on his project called The Little Optimist and his triumph in recovering from a series of hospital stays after major heart surgery as a young adult. Greg is a water baby and an accomplished sportsman, he is also a great supporter of Sea Rescue, a keen fundraiser and an activist for safety when out on the water.
A great reminder of how connected we all are was discovering that the little optimist sailing dinghy that Greg uses in his project is called Squirrel and a couple in the audience told us that their grandchildren had learnt to sail in that same dinghy. If you chat to anyone long enough you are bound to find a connection.
