Visit from 宋萌萌 (Mengmeng Song)

宋萌萌 (Mengmeng Song) Volunteer

We had a visit at the weekend from an past volunteer. While doing a project for the boat, as part of her Business Degree in Swansea University last year, she also helped out on the boat volunteering when she could. Here is a picture of Owain (Boat Manager) presenting a customised T-shirt with her Name on the back:IMG_1405IMG_1418IMG_1409We’d like to Thank Mengmeng for her visit and for all the presents she brought for all the crew. We wish her all the best for all her future endeavours!
Hope to see you again soon!
