People’s Postcode Lottery Charity of the Week
20th June 16
We are People's Postcode Lottery’s charity of the week! We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to players for continuing to support the Trust.
“The week has been the best! I never I thought I would get the chance to do this, and I am glad my nurse told me about the trip. The best bit is being on the boat and just sailing around and even getting to steer! I’ve made loads of new friends, I’ll definitely stay in touch.”
- Danielle, 15
“I enjoyed meeting new people who had gone through the same thing, because they were all really nice. I didn’t like leaving! I learnt that I LOVE sailing!! And I learnt 2 types of knots. I made loads of friends and learnt how to sail, and now I’m going on another course. I would love to be involved in the future; it was the best week of my life!!!!! Thank you so much for letting me come, I enjoyed it very VERY much!!!”
