I have been fortunate to have received direct support from RYA Sailability during my rehabilitation.  RYA Sailability is the governing body of disabled sailing in the UK. The charity has grown in recent years to over 25,000 and their volunteers to over 6,000. The charity has covered the RYA’s operational plan covering all 200 UK based sites with new initiatives including volunteer log books, Sailability TV and a Beginner to Winner initiative that takes people from novices through to elite sailing, and for some, onto Paralympics level.  The charity along with sport England has also funded the annual multiclass regatta which is the only event in Europe to bring together all the different types of accessible boats for sailors across the UK to race against each other. This event has proved to be an enormous success last year bringing over 150 sailors together over three days. In order to fund these new initiatives the charity needs support and I hope you will donate to continue this innovative and important activities. I am looking forward to meeting the young support walker and together, raising funds for this super charity.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
