BUSINESS and Public Sector leaders from across Northern Lincolnshire heard about the vital work of CatZero during a sail day to raise awareness of the charity and its work.
Setting sail from Grimsby, the four-hour venture took the team on a voyage along the Humber, with skipper and CatZero Director of Sailing Danny Watson supervising as the would-be sailors took an active part in the afternoon – hoisting sails and steering a safe passage.
Representatives from the office of the Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner joined business leaders including Grimsby Institute Group Chief Executive Gill Alton and their present governing body chair Jonathan Lovelle, architect Mark Hodson and Jonathan Goolden, Regulatory and Public Sector Partner at the region’s largest law firm Wilkin Chapman solicitors.
Also on board was Rebecca Kirvan-Rodgers, Communications Specialist at Cristal, Chair of Governors at Grimsby’s Franklin College Alex Baxter and Karl Elliott from VANEL, (Voluntary Action North East Lincolnshire).
Following the afternoon sail, the work of the charity was explained by our Director of Operations Dave Bertholini, with opportunities identified for team-building and corporate sails, volunteering work and sponsorship and support.
