Like most people, the team at Clyde Marine Training have looked on in awe as the health professionals and key workers around the UK – including mariners at sea – have continued to work the front line in an effort to combat the effects of the pandemic, and to keep vital supplies moving.

And to try and do their own little bit to help, General Manager Katy Womersley accepted the ‘Run for Heroes 5k challenge’, and then nominated the CMT team, to help raise money for NHS Charities Together, who’s mission statement is to support the welfare and the well-being of NHS staff as they fight COVID-19.

Giving her reasons for taking part, and subsequently involving the whole team, Katy stated: “We are very lucky as a team that we have been able to transition to working at home, and we have so much admiration for the courage being shown by the NHS workers who don’t have that choice, and I felt this was one small way we could show our appreciation and help a fantastic cause.”

Everyone in the team had their own way of completing the challenge, with some walking and others running – Katy managed hers with child and dog in toe – but everyone agreed it was very rewarding and helped with morale at this challenging time.
