Polly's Fund was set up to offer a special opportunity to Isle of Wight children to apply for a five-day sailing or watersports course during their summer holidays. Enabling them to have fun, be adventurous, and learn new skills through participation in outdoor activities. As part of the challenge, each child is asked to raise a minimum of £20. They are encouraged to do this through sponsorship like washing cars, helping neighbors, doing household chores, or anything they can think of!

Help fund an adventure on the water

Looking to the future, Pollys Fund is committed to continue supporting Isle of Wight young children, to allow them the opportunity to have an adventure just as Polly wished. All money raised helps to make this dream a reality and give young people chance to unleash a passion for adventure and the sea with their friends.
