Jamie Carr's boat ready to set sail

Manchester City Academy Coach Jamie Carr will soon set sail across the Atlantic Ocean as he rows 3,000 nautical miles solo to Antigua from the Canary Islands as part of his Nothing Ventured Campaign.

In preparation for his challenge, Jamie’s boat has been redesigned to display sponsor and charity logos.

Jamie is raising money for the Clubs charity, City in the Community (CITC), and Cancer Fund for Children in his native Ireland.

Here in Manchester, the funds will support CITC’s ‘City Thrive’ programme, which aims to develop young people’s understanding of mental health.

Jamie has previously ran six ultra-marathons in six days across the Sahara Desert during the Marathon Des Sables as part of the first challenge of his 2022 campaign.

Thank you to Manchester City’s Official Supporters Club, Axi, CTM, Image Group and Conferma Pay for supporting and sponsoring Jamie’s campaign.

Jamie had a message for the sponsors, saying: “The support I have received from my sponsors has been incredible and with them by my side I am really confident we can help CITC and Cancer Fund for children continue the amazing work they are doing.”
