The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust is a national charity that takes young people aged 8-24 on sailing and outdoor adventures to inspire them to believe in a brighter future living through and beyond cancer.
As an organisation that supports young people through the power of the outdoors, we recognise the critical importance of preserving our natural resources and ensuring a sustainable future for the planet and the generations to come.
Through our 2023-2025 Ambitions, we have committed to evaluate and reduce the negative impact our trips, fundraising, communications, and team activities have on the planet.
We will do this by reviewing the environmental impact of what we do, and make sustainable, green choices and decisions on the things in our control.
Publishing our Environmental Sustainability Policy Statement is the first step.
From Dame Ellen MacArthur’s early inspiration to how we got to where we are today.
Being at the wheel, you feel so in control, like you’re finally in the driver’s seat, literally and metaphorically.
If cancer feels like losing control, then learning to sail with others who have been through the same thing feels like taking it back again, says Callum.Find out more about the trips Support the Trust
Your imagination is the only limit to what you can do – from a personal challenge to doing something fun with friends or at work.
Help rebuild more young lives after cancer by giving a one-off gift, making a regular donation, donating in memory or leaving a little something in your will.
