At the end of each trip, Bill values the chance to share his ‘best bit, worst bit and funniest bit’ with everyone he’s spent the week with. It’s a chance to reflect on new memories as well as track the changing emotions since arriving on the Monday.
“I constantly see a marked increase in confidence in many of the young people who come on these trips."
Being able to take part in the banter, the games, and the laughs is something Bill looks forward to every sailing season. He values just being able to help facilitate the recovery of the young people he shares a week with.
“As a volunteer I get so much out of playing a small part in something that is so significant in the journey that young people are undertaking in rebuilding their life after cancer. It is both humbling and satisfying for me personally.”
