I am a volunteer at Medway Watersports Trust. We are a very small local charity, and we try to give people in a deprived area of the South East of England, the opportunity to go out sailing and Kayaking, which they wouldn't normally be able to do.
If we can get some support, we can get one child out as part of our summer holiday programme without them having to pay a huge cost.
We try to keep the prices for our services low, in a bid to get as many people out on the water as is possible, and in order to get more people out, we need covers for our boats so that we can keep them in good condition, ensuring that we can get more use out of them so we can keep them longer before having to replace them.
We are completely volunteer run, and our volunteers work very hard to get people out on the water. All our volunteers are enthusiastic and passionate about watersports, and we all want to encourage as many people as possible to come out with us.
Please help, just give what ever you can, it all helps, and you will know that all the donations will help us to get more and more people out on the water, enjoying our natural resources.
