Ways to donate to the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust:
Every penny you donate can really help to restore the confidence of a young person after their treatment for cancer.
The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust has teamed up with Virgin Money Giving to enable online donations as well as personal fundraising pages for those raising money for the Trust through organised events.
If you would like to donate to the Trust simply click on the Virgin Money Giving logo:
Become a Friend of the Trust with monthly regular giving:
A regular income is important for any charity to run its operations. Knowing even the smallest amount of money will be coming in every month can help when planning trips for the future. If just 10 people become a Friend of the Trust, giving just £4 per month for a year, someones son or daughter can be offered the experience of sailing with the Trust after treatment . If you would like to become a Friend of the Trust please download the form (Adobe PDF format):

Any monetary gift to the Trust helps us to continue to carry out our work taking young people recovering from cancer out on the water. If you would prefer to make a one-off donation by post rather than through Virgin Money Giving, then please download our donation form (Adobe PDF format):

“This is the first time I have been sailing, and I never thought it would be this good! I have really enjoyed the trip and learnt loads like how to tie knots, use the winches and hoist the sail. I would definitely come back again to see the friends I have made”
- Jorge, 15
“Jay returned full of confidence, chat, and knowledge of sailing. Jay had ‘life’ back in his eyes. He enjoyed the whole experience. His highlight was the privilege of sailing a yacht with Ellen. He would love to sail again. He even cooked a lasagne on his own for his yachting crew (He never cooks!!) He was full of pride.”
- Mother of Jay, 16
