Leading the fight against skin disease and skin cancer

Ocean Brothers 
Rowing Psychology

With the row fast approaching, British Skin Foundation has chatted to sports psychologist Dr Amanda Wilding Pinckney to learn more about how she's helped the Ocean Brothers mentally prepare for their challenge.

Ocean Brothers Greg Baily & Jude Massey are rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, unsupported to raise money for skin cancer research in memory of their dad, Peter. Over approximately eight weeks the daring duo will face weight loss, fatigue, boredom and sleep deprivation. That’s before you even consider the possibility of potential problems, daily chores (scraping barnacles from the hull) and bad weather! Read more.

Why donate to us?

Sixty percent of British people currently suffer from or have suffered with a skin disease at some point during their lifetime. Some skin conditions are manageable, others are severe enough to kill. We are here to help change that.

We raise money to fund research for cures for skin disease and skin cancer, but research doesn't fund itself.

We are the UK's only charity dedicated to skin research, and all of our donations and fundraising events are crucial to enabling us to continue our work.

We have supported more than 300 research projects and awarded £15 million in funding across all skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis and many more.

Help us find a cure today.
