Campaign launched to fight hunger in Balearics

ADVERTISEMENT

Global Yachting Group’s Nick Entwisle has founded a new project called Yachting Gives Back to address the stark disparity between rich and poor in the Balearics. GYG is a superyacht painting, supply and maintenance company headquartered in Spain.

“Employment in the Balearics is often seasonal and low-paid, making it hard for people to pay rent as well as put food on the table,” stated Entwisle, who plans to retire from GYG in May.  “Whether yacht crew or service businesses, we are fortunate to make our living from some of the wealthiest people on the planet and are therefore in a position where we can easily give something back to this beautiful island community we call home.”

Nick Entwisle: We are fortunate to make our living from some of the wealthiest people on the planet and are therefore in a position where we can easily give something back.

To that aim, Yachting Gives Back plans to work with several local charities to deliver food to those in need. Pinmar Supply will launch a food drive campaign with the help of its yachting customers and fellow industry service companies.

“Customers can take cardboard boxes from our Pinmar Supply outlets, including our delivery vans, and fill them with foodstuffs, hygiene products and other useful items,” general manager Tracey Miller stated. “The plan is to run three campaigns a year – Easter, end of summer season and Christmas – although, of course, we will be very happy to collect donations at any time.”

Yacht catering and provisioning company Delicioso will offer its clients the opportunity to add a contribution to their orders that then is delivered directly – with 20 percent more given by Delicioso itself.

Yachting Gives Back seeks nonperishables such as pasta, rice, flour, canned vegetables, milk, fruit juice and pasta sauces, as well as hygiene products such as shampoo, soap and toothbrushes.

    This sounds like a worthy cause but there is no Facebook page for the group that I can find and yachtinggivesback.com is not a valid website. Google search only reveals a successful media awareness campaign was launched without the support network behind it. Would love to know if you have more info.
