Team Wild Waves

My Pension Expert are proud to be the platinum sponsor for Charlotte Harris and Jessica Oliver, aka Team Wild Waves, as they take part in the World’s Toughest Row, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. In support of Women’s Aid and Shelter, these two exceptional women have taken on the behemoth task of rowing 3000 miles west across the Atlantic Ocean from the Canary Islands to Antigua and Barbuda over 60 days. With no previous rowing experience, we’re not sure if they’re sensationally brave or just plain mad!

Supporting great causes

Team Wild Waves are rowing the Atlantic Ocean to help tackle homelessness and domestic abuse, with a goal of raising £100,000 pounds for Shelter and Women’s Aid. These are charities that have seen a dramatic increase in demand throughout the COVID19 pandemic, and money raised will make a huge difference to the lives of many across the nation. My Pension Expert share Wild Waves’ commitment to ensuring the right support reaches those in desperate need. You can support the cause by donating here.

Women's Aid

Women’s Aid directly supports victims of domestic abuse by providing support to domestic abuse professionals, and works within communities to build a future where domestic violence is not tolerated. Since the start of COVID19, domestic abuse charities have seen a 700% increase in visits to their helpline websites*. Now more than ever, charities such as Women’s Aid need vital funds and resources to support the victims and survivors of domestic abuse.

Shelter works with the government to address the national housing crisis, ensure rights for renters, and increase social housing. Shelter also provides legal advice and helps secure safe accommodation for the homeless population. Last year, Shelter helped nearly 30,000 households through their face-to-face services, with six million visits to their online advice pages**.
