Quickstore Plymouth’s 26-mile sail raises nearly £3000 for Polycystic Kidney Disease charity

pkd-sailIn a bid to raise vital funds for the Polycystic Kidney Disease Charity, Sam and some of the team members at Quickstore Plymouth took to the water to race 26-miles around the channel. We’re pleased to announce that the team came 2nd overall out of 64 boats! They won extra trophies and charity money that will all contribute to helping families and sufferers of polycystic kidney disease.

Racing on 18th June the team managed to raise a staggering £2700! Thank you to all of those who donated on the JustGiving site, you raised £1850 for this fantastic cause. The team also earned another £910 from race awards, including picking up the Ancasta Challenge Trophy for fastest Beneteau and the Yacht Haven Trophy for being the fastest Yacht Haven boat.

Whilst the sailing is over there’s still time for you to contribute to this very worthy cause. Anything you can do to help sufferers of PKD and their families to get through this difficult time even more easily will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all the support you’ve given us, we’re extremely proud of what we’ve all managed to achieve!
