At the AGM some important decisions will be made. As a member of the Charity, you are eligible to vote at the Annual General Meeting. This gives you an opportunity to help structure the course the Charity will take in the future.
WE INVITE YOU TO BECOME PART OF OUR TEAM
The Charity needs enthousiastic committed volunteers. Although some members of the current Committee are prepared to go forward we do seek new people with fresh ideas to contribute to the growth and future succes of the Charity. If you do not want to be part of the Executive Committee there are several other roles that require an enthusiastic volunteer, such as Membership secretary, Yacht manager or Crewmaster. For more information, please get in touch via email@example.com or talk to any of the current committee members.
WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE YOU AT THE AGM !
As previously posted on this site, the next Disability Awareness Training session for crew is on Saturday 5th October, and we've had a very good uptake for places from some of our newest members who joined SFTD recently.
However there are still 2 places available to any crew who have not yet completed the course, including those who have only attended one day of the previous 2-day training.
If you would like to take a place please let me know asap!
Sailing for the Disabled is having an OPEN DAY on SUNDAY 11 August from 12.00 to 16.00
Located in Douglas harbour, you will be able to take a look inside our beautiful vessel Pride of Mann III and have a chat with members of the charity. There will be representatives from the committee, skippers, crew and members who sail with us.
Sailing for the Disabled is looking for anyone who would like to sail with us, abled and enabled crew, right from experienced skippers to novice sailors, to people who just want to lend a hand in running the charity. Pride of Mann III is fitted out to enable people with a wide range of disabilities to sail.
Sailing for the Disabled is a wholly local charity run by enthusiastic volunteers. SO COME ALONG AND MEET OUR FRIENDLY MEMBERS AND CREW!
On 19. 20 & 21 July the Manx National Heritage presented in conjuction with TNT Britain and ADG Europe the William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream Castle tour on the IOM and SftD was invited to have a collection at the end of each performance. Of course we happily accepted this invitation, which resulted in a total of £393.29. The visiters in Peel might have been surpriced by a collecting donkey who definitely brought in some extra pennies!
A big thank you goes to Grantly Marshall from ADG Europe and to Ed Bunce from Laxey Glen Pavilion for allowing us to do the collection. Rest assured all the funds go towards the service provision to members.
