Announcement of chosen charities
During the early months of every year we, the Ladies Committee, choose our charities for the current year. With the Roadmap to reduce lock-down restrictions beginning to roll out in April, we hope to be able to start putting on some LC events at the Club before too long, and to start raising funds for the following two 2021 chosen charities:
The Ellen McArthur Cancer Trust – East Cowes
Supporting personal development of children and young people (8-14 years) who have had cancer. Through sailing and other UK-wide adventure activities, the Trust supports and inspires these young people to embrace their future with optimism after treatment for cancer.
Mayfield Nurseries – Weston Lane
A garden centre providing a place for people with mental health issues and learning disabilities to develop new skills and be part of a supportive, friendly community. Through a schedule of wellbeing groups and training programmes, people are empowered to made dramatic improvements in their mental health, confidence and self esteem.
Ladies Committee April Step Challenge
During April, past and present members of the Ladies Committee are taking on the challenge to walk 1.5 million steps, equivalent to the distance between Hamble and Milan, to raise funds for The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust (EMCT).
Each week our team will update you on our progress via the Just Giving page and regular Club newsletters
Support us on our challenge as we step out and walk for charity.
DONATIONS can be made via the Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lcaprilsteps
The EMCT is a national charity based in the IOW that supports young people age 8-24 in rebuilding their confidence and life after cancer through sailing and outdoor activity trips.
