We have been provided a slot at the Port Erin Shoprite to conduct a bagpack / show the face of SftD. The date for your diaries is Saturday 11 Feb.
Looking for volunteers to join me on the day and support the event.
Please can you contact Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can give a couple of hours on the day to support this event.
Sadly, our friend and fellow sailor Stuart Brierley, passed away in December.
It is Margaret's dearest wish that as many members and former members of Sailing for the Disabled will be able to attend the funeral at Douglas Crematorium on 18th January, at 1.00pm . Afterwards all are warmly welcomed to the Albert Hotel, Port St Mary, 3.00 pm, where we can celebrate his life, meet his family and reminisce. Stuart loved the sea, the sailing and he worked tirelessly for years fund-raising for Sailing for the Disabled.
To honour Stuart and his love of the sea and our charity, Margaret has specifically requested that if possible we all wear our brightest sailing gear on the occasion. It will bring great comfort to her.
Please inform anyone who knew Stuart, who may not have Internet access, of the arrangements and invitation.
It is with an immense sadness and sense of loss, that Sailing for the Disabled announces the passing of Stuart Brierley. Stuart was a huge supporter of the charity and for many years organised and implemented our collecting box network across the Island. A great character, and a loving husband, we extend our sincere condolences to Margaret and the rest of his family at this time.
Yesterday's bag pack in Onchan Shoprite raised £412.83 for the charity. Pretty good for such a foul day with footie on the telly! Thanks to the team of Chris, Mike, Tony, Dawn( and moi) for giving up their time to help and doing a great PR job
There will be one of our famous coffee mornings on the boat on Saturday 10th December from 10am -1pm.
Why not take a break from Christmas shopping and come down for a cuppa, cake and a catch-up with your sailing pals?
Donations of any baked goods will be most welcome!
