Sail 4 Cancer in Britain - looking for volunteers

.
British charity Sail 4 Cancer has now established an office in Fareham to better serve families along the South Coast of Britain and inform cancer patients and their families about the sponsored respite opportunities available to them and is looking for volunteers.

Families are taken on sponsored sailing days, ocean cruises, river boat adventures and park breaks. The charity also provides sailing weekends for youngsters living with cancer to improve their confidence and meet other young people dealing with the disease

'Families who live with cancer experience enormous stress. From the moment someone is diagnosed with the disease family life is severely affected and often financial strain is added to an already heavy burden. We give families the opportunity to spend time together away from the stress of their everyday lives. We want them to just have fun as a family and use their time together to create special memories' remarked Lizette van Niekerk, Fundraising Manager for Sail 4 Cancer.

In 2011 Sail 4 Cancer helped 400 people and this year they hope to help many more families. If you want to nominate a partner, child, friend or family for a much-needed break simply visit the charity’s website or call 0845 408 1849.

No offence locals of England, but I believe we have had five sunny summer days in a row, which meant for a little sea breeze this afternoon, and four practice races ahead of official racing tomorrow and Sunday.
