Projects we supported in 2015

Clarksons Platou continues to support causes within the community and further afield, with special attention remaining on children's' causes, maritime related organisations and charities focussed on health issues. So far in 2015 we have supported the following three organisations:

Salaam Baalak Trust.

Inspired by Mira Nair's film 'Salaam Bombay' in 1988, Salaam Baalak Trust (SBT) grew out of Nukkad - a street-based intervention programme that began working with street children in and around New Delhi Railway Station. SBT is dedicated to the care and protection of neglected street children working in raw, harsh city conditions. The Trust has supported6203children from all over the country and abroad in 2013-14. Detoxification of children addicted to drugs and linking out of school children to educational facilities are core to interventions made by SBT. Clarksons Platou's donation will help to finance the Trust's detoxification and education programme. 

Kids Cancer Charity.

In 2014, Kids Cancer Charity commemorated 25 years of caring and supporting families, teenagers affected by cancer. Today, the charity as a small service team assisted by many part timers and volunteers who between them cover the UK. They are probably best known for their Holiday Programme which gives the family a chance to get away from the pressures of hospital and treatment. The aim is to provide memories that will last a lifetime and Clarksons Platou is pleased to support the Kids Cancer Charity's cause through its donation.

Sponsoring a trainee cadet under the Maritime London Officer Cadet Scheme (MLOCS).

Founded in 1992, MLOCS' objectives are to support the training of UK-based mariners, to recognise and promote improvements and standards of expertise on merchant vessels and to provide a pool of UK seafarers who might look to the City of London for careers when coming ashore.  Clarksons Platou's sponsorship of a cadet will continue for the second year running.

Marie Curie.

Founded more than 65 years ago, Marie Curie provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families.  In 2014 that cared for more than 40,000 people across the UK.  It offers hospice care, in-home nursing and support, both via its Support Line and online community.  Clarksons Platou supported the charity following the death of Gibb Tools' colleague, Ian Clark who passed away early in 2015.
