Setting sail with support from Cirencester Friendly

Cirencester Friendly’s, 125 Foundation are pleased to announce that we will be supporting the Lyme Regis Sea School Trust, to enable them to continue their active maintenance programme on their dinghies.

Cirencester Friendly Member, Josephine Law, A Fundraiser at Lyme Regis Sea School Trust said:

“The Lyme Regis Sea School was set up in 1995 as a registered charity designated to teach people of all ages to sail. Everyone is a volunteer and gives up their time for the enjoyment of the sport.

The sea school provides an excellent opportunity for local children and adults to learn to sail, which is something that we are lucky to be able to do on our doorstep.

Our dinghies are used throughout the year. We have our multiple intensive week-long courses over the summer holidays. The dinghies are also used by our local comprehensive school, The Woodroffe and by Lyme Regis Sailing Club for various abilities of Youth Sailing. We are determined to make sailing a sport open to all by being able to provide dinghies that people can sail in.

We are a not for profit charity and are grateful for the support and donations we receive. Without the support that Cirencester Friendly have given us we would find it difficult to continue to maintain our boats and trailers to a high standard, and there are lots of costs involved for purchasing and maintenance. We’d like to thank Cirencester Friendly for their generous donation and support.”
