Sponsorship and donations

What your money could buy

MAKE A DONATION - 91.5% of expenditure in 2018-19 went on the direct delivery of our charitable services. We have operated with similar figures for a number of years but in 2019-20, when we were unable to sail at all due to Covid, we focussed on essential expenditure needed to protect the future of the charity.

£16,000 - food on board for a year
