The Kader family welcomed a second visit from ‘Ocean Revival’ team member, Joel McGlynn. Joel is part of a team of 4 men who will be rowing across the Atlantic Ocean from New York to London in May 2020. Joel visited our school last year to share information about his upcoming adventure with the children and to let them know a little more about the charity that they are supporting; ‘Plastic Oceans UK’.
On this visit, Joel brought with him the boat that his team will be rowing across the North Atlantic Ocean on, what they say, is the ‘World’s most dangerous row’.
Our children were super motivated and had some fantastic questions for Joel, including; “What do you eat while you are on the boat?” “How long will the row take?” “What happens if you hit an iceberg?”
We will keep you updated on Joel’s progress and any opportunities for sponsorship!
A little note from the team:
OCEAN REVIVAL 2020 OUR ETHOS
Plastic in our Oceans is an astronomical problem that is hugely effecting the ecological systems that are vital not just to Marine Life but also Human. According to ‘Science Journal’, 12.7 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans every year, causing havoc with our oceans food systems and Marine Life, and the problem is only getting worse.
OCEAN REVIVAL 2020 is a team of serving and former serving Royal Marine Commandos, who have fought alongside each other in 45 Commando. They have now teamed up to take the fight against plastic by rowing across the North Atlantic Ocean, rowing a route that has never been completed before and one that is statistically the most dangerous and arduous ocean row to attempt.
Ocean Revival 2020 is fighting back by attempting to raise awareness and help keep momentum in the fight against plastic in our oceans; a fight the team would love you to join them on.
