Join the Scaramouche Sailing Trust’s board

16 June, 2021

The Scaramouche Sailing Trust needs your help. We are looking for two new Trustees to help raise crucial funds for Greig City Academy (GCA) Sailing Programme and shape the future of the charity.

Since 2014, the GCA Sailing Programme has established an extraordinary track record in changing lives through sailing. They have provided opportunities to students from inner city London who would never otherwise got afloat. Driven by passion and commitment, their achievements are widely known: from dinghies on the local reservoir to completing back to back Fastnets.

A host of people have volunteered their time and support to make this possible. The programme has benefitted from wonderful gifts in kind and commitments from people across sailing. It has won financial backing from Sport England and generous sponsors like the DUAL Group.

But, behind the scenes, it has been a hand-to-mouth existence. It has often been uncertain where all the money is going to come from to keep the programme running.

Now, the Scaramouche Sailing Trust has been set up as a registered charity to move the programme on to a more stable footing. There is tremendous potential to bring in more consistent financial support, and also to explore how other state schools can bring the benefits of sailing to their students.

We need your help to expand the board and fulfil this potential.

If you have a passion for sailing, a commitment to make it available to young people from all backgrounds, and the time and energy to become a trustee, then we would love to hear from you.
