PBO reader's fundraising race

PBO reader John Spencely, a volunteer driver for St Columba’s Hospice in Edinburgh, will be sailing his Contessa 32 Peak Flow in the 3-plus day, 210-mile Granton to Orkney Race starting this Thursday 9 June.

The Race is organised by the Royal Forth Yacht Club, whose local races are sailed in sight of St Columba’s Hospice.

John and the three other members of his crew – George Brown, Patrick Carnie and Keith Stott – are using their race entry to raise as much money for the hospice’s rebuild campaign as possible.

If other PBO readers wish to support this worthy cause, information about the hospice can be found on the St Columba website www.stcolumbashospice.org.uk, or to sponsor John and his crew visit his fundraising page.
