The Transatlantic Traffords get ready to set sail
Raising money for St Christopher’s Hospice – a hospice in South East London that exists to promote and provide skilled and compassionate palliative care of the highest quality, the Traffords are hoping to beat the previous father and son Transatlantic time of 78 days.
At the start of the month, The Traffords flew out to the Canaries and have spent the past week getting in some last-minute rowing and carrying out the final preparations and inspections before they depart.
Along with all of the other teams and solo entrants competing in the race, the Traffords will set off tomorrow morning (Wednesday 12th December) on their 3,000-mile journey to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua.
We would like to wish James, Hugo and Joe Trafford the best of luck with their challenge and look forward to seeing how they get on.

#HostEnvironmentalPledge. Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; Student Minds, LandAid and Just a Drop.Show me all news
I decided to stay at Central Point student accommodation in Plymouth. I opted to live in one of the studio rooms because I really wanted my own space as well as having a peaceful environment where I could just come home to and unwind in after work.
