Sail 4 Cancer Celebrates 5th Birthday

13 December 2006

The Bugle Pub in the Hamble very generously helped Sail 4 Cancer to mark its 5th Birthday this autumn, by offering a room and a delicious two course buffet dinner.

New faces and old were present. New patron and round-the-world yachtswoman Dee Caffari was there to share in the celebrations, as was new ambassador and Olympic hopeful Rachel Howe. Atlantic rowers Liz O’Keefe and Richard Mayon-White, who spent 2 months last winter rowing across the Atlantic in unbelievably appalling conditions to raise money for the charity, also attended.  Chair of Trustees, Graham Precey was joined by new trustees Hamish Oliphant and Louise Hooker.

Five years on and over 1,700 patient and family sailing days later, Sail 4 Cancer has established itself firmly as a cancer charity that not only raises money for treatment and research, but also offers respite to those living with cancer, patients and their families and carers alike, through sailing opportunities.

In addition to an update from Trustees (Andy, Richard and Graham) recently appointed Chief Executive Connie Carroll also said a few words, before the candles on the scrumptious chocolate birthday cake were blown out. Sadly it was then time to leave the wonderful warmth and hospitality of The Bugle, but everyone departed full of hope and enthusiasm for the next five years of the charity’s work.
