There are so many ways you can help young people rebuild their confidence after cancer through volunteering. From using your professional expertise to cheerleading at events, it all makes a huge difference.
"When I think of the trips, I just think of the fun that I’m having."
Kirstie has come full circle with the Trust. She sailed as a young person, became a volunteer, and has returned in her new capacity as a trip medic. After years of spending summers with the Trust, Kirstie sees the changes in young people as they return for trips again and again.Find out more about the trips Support the Trust
Could you use your professional sailing skills to help young people rebuild their lives after cancer? Each year the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust employs Freelance Skippers to work on our sailing trips from Cowes and Largs between June and October. As a Skipper, you have overall responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of the crew, the safety and security of the vessel and its equipment at all times.
Your imagination is the only limit to what you can do – from a personal challenge to doing something fun with friends or at work.
Give a one-off gift, make a regular donation, sponsor a young person, donate in memory or leave us a little something in your will.
We're so sad that, due to COVID-19, we can't run first time trips or our scheduled return trip programme in 2020. But we will still be here for young people who need us this year and beyond. Click here for more information.
