We are delighted to have been awarded a grant of £1,000 from The AkzoNobel Community Fund. The fund was established to provide a further helping hand for charities, community groups and youth organisations that AkzoNobel staff already dedicate their free time to helping. A massive thanks to Gareth Thomas and Tim Bannister from AkzoNobel Yacht Coatings, who are committed life-long Rona Sailing Project volunteers for putting us forward for the grant.
As a volunteer based organisation, with a small full time team with no dedicated fundraising staff, we are dependent on a network of volunteers including Gareth and Tim, not only for running voyages and maintaining the vessels but also in raising much needed funds. The grant will go directly towards supporting people to access life-changing sail training voyages in 2022.
What a great way to start off a New Year!
