The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) employs about 750 staff at its Taunton headquarters, collecting and supplying hydrographic and marine geospatial data with a primary aim of protecting life at sea by enabling safe navigation. Each autumn the staff select a charity that is then supported with a series of fundraising events throughout the following year.
