MLA graduate aiming for the top in support of Sailors’ Society


Gordon Foot, a veteran in the maritime industry, is preparing to embark on an awe-inspiring challenge to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak.

A graduate of UK-based MLA (formerly Marine Learning Alliance) College, a higher education establishment specialising in maritime distance learning, Gordon aims to raise funds for the charity Sailors’ Society, which provides essential support and welfare services to seafarers worldwide. He trains hard for the difficult climb and is filled with enthusiasm and determination to conquer the formidable heights of the Tanzanian volcano.

Sailors’ Society is an organization providing invaluable assistance to seafarers and their families. It does things like offering emotional support, mental health counselling, and practical assistance during times of crisis.

By taking on the physical and mental challenges that await him on Mount Kilimanjaro, Gordon hopes to shed light on the crucial work carried out by the Sailors’ Society and raise much-needed funds to continue their mission. As he reaches for the summit, he will carry with him the hopes and dreams of countless seafarers who rely on Sailors’ Society’s support.

Gordon is seeking sponsorship from all avenues and is hoping that his friends and colleagues can his fund-raising efforts by making a donation at:
