Fundraising Goes Through The Roof!

14 August 2004

Sail 4 Cancer’s fund raising target for Skandia Cowes Week 2004 was £20,000, a sum that would have equalled the largest amount ever raised by an Official Charity in the history of the event. However, we are delighted to report that Sail 4 Cancer has well and truly smashed this target, raising approximately £42,000 during the eight-day regatta!

The funds will be directed to cancer treatment centres around the UK, bowel cancer research via Cancer Research UK and to get families affected by cancer out on the water.

Richard Groome, Trustee of Sail 4 Cancer said:

“Thanks to everyone involved in achieving this fantastic record-breaking sum and, in particular, the Skandia Cowes Week title sponsor Skandia for all their support (the Skandia team alone raised £15,000 from their own fund raising activities in support of the charity).  Special mentions also go to Charlie Fish and Inspire Events who raised £10,000, iTouch who organised the SMS Auction which raised £3,500 whilst Regatta Director Stuart Quarrie and his team at Cowes Combined Clubs raised a further £4,000. The regatta’s supporting sponsors also played a much appreciated role in helping to raise both the profile of the charity as well as funds. A big thank you and congratulations all round.”
