Leg 9 - Harwich to London

Ernie

Name:

Ernie

Age:

Turns 10 during his Round Britain leg

Hometown:

Saffron walden

First sailed with the Trust:

In 2016 after undergoing treatment for Bilateral Retinoblastoma (eye cancer) at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge between 2007 and 2011.

Why I love the Trust:

“From my first trip I gained confidence, enjoyment, made new friends and I learned to sail. The trip was different to any other I’d been on before because I was with other people who have had cancer. On Round Britain 2017, I can’t wait to have the wind on my face and to enjoy a really fun trip. The time limit makes it feel more like a race.”

Fun fact about me:

We have loads of frogspawn in our garden pond!

Why I love the Trust:

Dominic says he loves meeting new people on Trust trips. Dominic made friends with Ernie on their first four-day South Coast Trust trip in 2016 and now they are both doing the same leg of Round Britain 2017.

Why I love the Trust:

Fun fact about me:

I play the violin and I met Olly Murs and lots of other popstars backstage at a VIP concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 2014.

Eve

In 2015 after undergoing treatment for Acute Myloid Leukaemia (with bone marrow transplant) and Wilms’ Tumour (kidney cancer) at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Leicester Royal Infirmary between 2010 and 2013.

Why I love the Trust:

“The sailing makes the Trust different; no other trips offer this experience. I’ve made friends and learned new skills. I’m looking forward to meeting new people, taking part in a longer sailing trip and learning different sailing skills through Round Britain 2017. There’s only one boat so will be more time sailing.”

Fun fact about me:

I enjoy dance and drama and taking part in stage shows.

Hometown:

First sailed with the Trust:

In 2015 after undergoing treatment for Acute Myloid Leukaemia at Northampton General Hospital between 2012 and 2015.

Why I love the Trust:

“I gained a lot more confidence through my first Trust trip. Then going back every year and staying longer than you do on any other trip makes it different. I’m looking forward to making more new friends, developing more sailing skills and more confidence in myself by taking part in Round Britain 2017.”

Fun fact about me:

I currently hold a record for the most ‘Beads of Courage’ at Northampton Hospital – I have over 1,000! Each bead represents a specific treatment (such as blood transfusion, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and overnight stay in hospital) to display and acknowledge a young person’s cancer journey.
