The team onboard the Mermaid Endurer have done a tremendous amount recently to raise money for a very special cause, and one which is particularly close to Chief Engineer, Steve Luther.
Steve’s cousin’s son Daniel tragically died of Myotubular myopathy aged 21 months. Daniel’s mother has since done a great deal to support the Myotubular Trust who are funding research into a cure, and assist with the comfort and wellbeing of children who suffer from this condition. In young children Myotubular Myopathy causes muscles to remain in a very weak stage of development. As such many sufferers need mechanical ventilation and are very medically fragile, requiring nursing care 24/7.
The team aboard the Endurer held a charity event to support this truly worthy cause, and have raised well over £1,000 which will be match funded by Bibby Line Group.
