In July 2020, the Shipwrights Charitable Fund Trustees were very generous and provided a contribution of £1,000 towards our sail training scheme for young people. At the time of the donation, a request for a report was made but no date was given – the report was due ‘in due course’.
Now that we have completed our 2021 Summer Sailing Scheme we are in a position to report back as to how the money was spent and we have put the information in a brief document which is now attached.
