Impressive news just in: A.M. Nomikos CEO Mark Jackson is taking part in a cross-Atlantic sail to raise money for the Great Ormond Street OSCAR campaign.
The sail, which will set off on the open sea in late November, is expected to take just 18 days, and is an opportunity of a lifetime – or, as Mark says himself, might seem "like madness".
We think it's marvellous that Mark has chosen to support the OSCAR campaign in such a bold way, and we'll be watching his moves via a blog from his JustGiving page.
The campaign, set up by Spinnaker chairman Phil Parry after his son Oscar, who received life-saving care at Great Ormond Street Hospital, helps fund essential research into childhood diseases.
