Tollesbury Marina and Cruising Club has become the first UK marina to agree a partnership with Sea-Changers. The Marina, based on the Blackwater Estuary in Essex, will raise funds through its marina and chandlery activities and Sea-Changers will distribute these funds to UK marine conservation projects on its behalf. Tollesbury Marina, in supporting us demonstrates its strong environmental commitment.

   

Customers of Tollesbury Marina and Chandlery will have the opportunity to add an optional donation to their mooring fees and to other purchases at the chandlery.  The partnership will begin operating in September and will complement the Marina’s on-going commitment to environmental initiatives including The Green Blue. 100% of the money raised by Tollesbury
Marina and Cruising Club customers will be passed on to marine conservation charities and projects, with no administration costs subtracted by the Sea-Changers. In due course Sea-Changers and Tollesbury Marina are particularly keen to support marine conservation projects in the area local to Tollesbury.

Julian Goldie, Owner of Tollesbury Marina and Chairman of the Yacht Harbour Association said: “The conservation of the environment and the marine life in this beautiful area is of great importance to us and to all those who visit our marina. I believe all marinas have a responsibility to work hard to protect and maintain the marine environment. We’re delighted to have formed this partnership in order to give our customers the opportunity to give something back to the environment they experience and enjoy when sailing.”

Helen Webb, Co-Founder of Sea-Changers said: “It’sgreat to be working with Tollesbury Marina to raise much needed funds. Julian is very committed protecting and maintaining the environment and our partnership is a very practical way to address some of the big issues facing
our seas today. We hope that Tollesbury will be the first of many UK marinas supporting UK marine conservation through Sea-Changers”.
