Visit From High Sheriff

This week we are again sailing with Dementia Adventure, a registered charity that is dedicated to supporting people to live well with dementia and have a sense of adventure in their lives. Like us, they believe in the benefits to be gained from regular, active engagement with the natural world.

Before the five day activity charter departed Maldon’s Hythe Quay, Simon Hall MBE, High Sheriff of Essex paid us a visit. You see him here with our Chair of Trustees, Hilary Halajko.

Single Homeless Project Sails Suffolk

The Single Homeless Project is a London-wide charity working to prevent homelessness and help vulnerable and socially excluded people to transform their lives. They do this by providing support and accommodation, promoting well being, enhancing opportunity, and being a voice for change.
