Peter Crebbin wearing number 282 in the Parish Walk, today got to his destination of Rushen in 4 hours 51 minutes 25 seconds. Peter was walking for SFTD and you can still sponsor him, just pop into the Co Op shop in Port Erin and let Peter know.
Well done Peter a grand performace and all of our Committee are proud of you and we look forward to seeing you on your next sail.
On the evening of Friday 17 June we were delighted to have the company of some of our Corporate sponsors and benefactors at our annual Corporate evening, which is held to let them know what we are doing and for us to say a big thank you for their support.
This year we held the event on board POMIII and also had small bistro style tables and chairs set up on the pontoon. Catering was provided by Oasis catering and our very capable secretary Gerry had arranged for the drinks and nibbles that were served. The guests met the Committee members and heard about the activites of the charity and were able to see the impressive POMIII. The evening was blest with fine weather but we did have an occasional gust of strong wind coming down the harbour to remind us of our sailing.
Thanks to Gerry and Neil for organising the evening.
On Saturday 12th June our Annual Flag Day collection took place in Douglas and this raised £533 for our charity. Organiser Margaret Brierley said "I wish to thank all the people who kindly gave a donation and all the volunteer collectors who turned out on Saturday, they are too numerous to mention individually. Despite some of our regular collection places not being available to us we still managed to raise a significant amount which will be used to fund Pride of Mann III and her operation"
On Saturday the 18th June the Parish Walk takes place and we are delighted that member Peter Crebbin is once again taking part and will be raising money for “Sailing for the Disabled” through sponsorship.
Peter took part last year and walked to Rushen and raised the magnificent sub of £2,170 for us.
Peter aged 36 is quite a remarkable young man who has been nominated in the Isle of Man Newspapers Pride of Mann Awards on less than three times, 2012, 2015 and again this year in the Service with a Smile category for his work at the Co-op store in Port Erin.
Well done Peter and good luck on Saturday and in the competition.
