Our awesome HM Coastguard colleagues are undertaking an epic cycle ride challenge when they are visiting many of the Kent HM Coastguard stations during 31st Aug-1st Sept. Why are they undertaking this marathon ride you may ask? One of their colleagues the late Herne Bay Station Officer Gordon Sinclair (pictured above) very sadly passed away earlier this year after twenty years dedicated service to the HM Coastguard. The cycle ride is in memory to Gordon Sinclair and all the funds raised will be in aid of the Coastguard Association, which is a charitable organisation that helps serving or retired Coastguard personnel in times of genuine hardship, povery or distress.
