Miss Isle School of Sip-Puff Sailing has been awarded a grant of £3,000 towards the installation of a hoist at Cowes Yacht Haven. This will allow easy access to the charity’s boat for those who want to go sailing using the sip-puff method and will also benefit a range of other users who can only access boats using a hoist.
The Morrisons Foundation is the chief recipient of the monies generated through the sale of carrier bags in Morrisons stores in England, Wales and Scotland.
Charity founder Natasha Lambert, a young sailor with athetoid cerebral palsy, received the cheque at Morrisons in Newport.
The hoist should be in place before the beginning of the sailing season next year.
