    Weʼve raised £830 to Help Save SYM Sailing Club from Eviction.

    London Borough of Havering.
    Funded on Wednesday, 19th May 2021

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    SYM Sailing Club (Stubbers Young Mariners) is facing eviction from Stubbers Activity Centre, its home since 1982. We have been prevented from resuming sailing on the lake by Stubbers and told to clear the site.

    The club is actively fighting this eviction, engaging with local MPs and councillors, and launching a legal challenge to preserve this valuable resource for Havering and Essex.

    Please donate now and help raise the funds needed for ongoing running costs and potential legal fees incurred in fighting this unjust eviction.

    Club History:

    SYM is a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) recognised training centre which teaches people of all ages and abilities to sail safely and affordably. The Club is unique as it is managed by volunteers, has its own fleet of 35 boats and all the instructors are RYA qualified.

    As a community-based club SYM has helped Cubs, Scouts, Guides, an Autistic Society group, GCSE students, Duke of Edinburgh candidates and even trained young sailors to represent Havering in the London Youth Games. The family friendly atmosphere builds personal confidence, independence, diverse thinking and supports good mental health all whilst being an environmentally friendly sport.
