For every one young person the Trust supports there are NINE we cannot – we need your help to let more young people know we are here to help them.

We’re going Round Britain this summer and 100 young people who have all sailed with the Trust in recovery from cancer, will be involved in this extraordinary 2,000-mile sailing relay challenge.

Throughout May to September, the Trust’s 44ft voyage yacht, Moonspray, will visit over 60 coastal towns and cities with five different young people joining the crew for each leg.

Round Britain 2017 is the ultimate experience in nurturing confidence, self-belief and independence in young people. But why is this important? Find out here – Why are we going Round Britain?

Our route

Round Britain 2017 reaches the length and breadth of the UK, connecting young people and building on the positive moments during their recovery. We would love every community around the UK to be part of this challenge's fun and adventure.

Even if you don’t live by the coast, our young people will be venturing inland as part of their stopovers too as they get involved with local events and activities, and visit other young people still on treatment to help them see there is life after illness.

And we need YOU to get involved too so we can support even more young people in starting to believe in their future. Want to know more about how you can help ramp up the excitement and support in your hometown?
