Members of HMS DIAMOND’s Ship’s Company came up with a novel way of raising money for charity last month by ‘leap-frogging’ the whole Top of The Rock Run.

Approximately 30 members of the Warrant Officers and Senior Rates Mess leap-frogged their way up the Rock to raise money for their Mess charity, The Hosanna House and Children’s Pilgrimage Trust (HCPT).the_gibraltar_magazine_november_2016-web_page_009_image_0003

“HCPT is a charity offering pilgrimage holidays to Lourdes in the south of France, for disabled and disadvantaged people from around the UK and further afield,” a spokesman said. “The HCPT group the Mess supports are a friendly and enthusiastic group dedicated to helping disabled children with naval connections enjoy and benefit from a pilgrimage to Lourdes.”

The group is fortunate to have, as regular travellers, a number of dedicated nurses, often fresh from the front line at sea or ashore in the world’s trouble spots and some very experienced carers. “The HCPT group always welcomes new helpers, of whatever age, who bring fresh ideas and fun to the pilgrimage,” the spokesman said.
