Fantastic Thank You Messages from Ramsey Grammar School

 I just wanted to say thank you to the crew for a brilliant Sailing Day on Wednesday 26th April. The students had a brilliant time :) Below they have all written a small comment as a thank you to you all.

Dear sailing for the disabled crew
Thank you for a very lovely day sailing on the pride of man 3 and the best bit I enjoy the most was using the engines out in the bay and motoring round the marker boys.
Thanks

A successful Bag Pack in Peel

We had a busy successful bag packing day in The Peel Shoprite Store  on Saturday raising  £587.28 ! A very pleasing amount to add to funds.
Margaret would like to thank everyone who helped but in particular Peter Crebbin and Sarah Spencer. These loyal members worked hard ALL day  not only packing and carrying shopping but also chatting enthusiastically to customers about the joys of sailing. Other volunteers were Ade, Anne, Linda, Ian, Gill, Neil, Sue, Tony and one of our new members Glenda. Thank you all for giving time to SFTD to help with the very important fundraising.
The Peel shoppers plus Shoprite staff were friendly as well as generous with their donations. They also showed much interest in our photos etc and many lingered to chat about Pride of Mann III and her fantastic facilities. In all a rewarding day!
Thank you to Gillian - Shoprite's Marketing Manager - for arranging our bag pack.

Bag Pack Saturday May 6

Volunteers are needed to help with this bag pack in Shoprite, Derby Road, Peel a week on Saturday.
As well as raising funds to keep our fantastic yacht  Pride of Mann III sailing, bag packs also help to raise awareness of the charity. 
Please contact Margaret on 832212 if you could possibly spare an hour or two to help with bag packing OR talking to customers and giving out information about SFTD.
Many Thanks to Shoprite for agreeing that we use this store as we haven't visited Peel Shoprite for a few years. 

We will be up in Peel later in the year with the boat for The Traditional Boat weekend.

Ideas needed for games and entertainment

We have applied to have a stall at Tynwald Fair on Wednesday 5 July.
This will provide an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of Sailing For The Disabled and should be fun for helpers and visitors to our stand.
This year priority  for allocation of stalls depends on  those who provide games and entertainment and also sell a variety of products. Our stall will have a range of SFTD clothing, badges, bags etc for sale, a variety of games on a nautical theme to play and if we have an electrical supply then films and video clips to watch.
If anyone can think of a suitable game or produce a video clip The committee  would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Margaret on 832212  with any ideas.
Peter C has already booked a holiday so that he can help but we do want lots of other volunteers so please contact Margaret if you have an hour or two to spare.
We have a great charity please do support it.
