New Sail 4 Sale Project Launches

Sail 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of sailing enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of sport (e.g. sailing) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Sail 4 Cancer has launched an exciting range of barrel sailing bags made from recycled sail cloth. This new fundraising programme is called 'Sail 4 Sale'.

The announcement comes after a large donation of used sails was made to the charity from Isle of Wight based sail cloth company 'Wight Sails'.

Commenting on the announcement, Chairman of the 4 Cancer Group Graham Precey said "As a sailing nation, we have a huge appetite for new sails every year. Sadly however, old sails are often overlooked and are usually thrown away in land-fill sites."

"Consequently, we have launched our Sail 4 Sale campaign which aims to encourage sailors to recycle their old sails whilst at the same time helping British families living with cancer. All sail donations will be up-cycled into bags and other products to raise funds for the charity."


Graham concluded "This recylcing initiative is a partnership between many organisations who are all working together to help families in difficult circumstances. Veolia UK is helping with logistics and StorageMart is assisting with container storage. The bags are being made by M-24 and the initial batch of sails have been donated by Wight Sails. We are incredibly grateful for their help."

"We have all sorts of sail material available including Dacron, Mylar and various spinnaker fabrics in all sorts of vibrant colours. We're very excited about this new venture and we'd love to hear from anyone who'd like to get involved. Many thanks."

The bigger barrel bag (57cm in length) is £48 and the smaller barrel bag (44cm in length) is £30 including postage.
