Calling young sailors in Bolton
The Neil Murphy Sailing Trust was established nearly a year ago by Maddie King in memory of her partner, Neil Murphy, who died in a motorbike accident in September, 2011.
Ms King launched the trust to share her partner’s love of sailing in the Lake District.
The trust provides funding for youths up to the age of 21 who have never been sailing, and helps them to gain their first level qualifications.
Funding will be given to groups who might be described as disadvantaged, discriminated against or vulnerable, including youth offenders. Equipment will be provided.
