CLUB SUPPORT FOR CHARITIES

Background

The Club supports many charities. We have raised funds for the RNLI through a fish supper and a collection box. We invite RNLI representatives to the clubhouse on the evenings of our AGM and our Christmas Draw to sell Christmas cards, calendars, and other gifts. Our Coffee Morning each September raises funds for Macmillan Cancer. Each September we hold a race to raise funds for the Bart's Bash Foundation. Additionally, each year or so we choose a specific charity to support which is used, amongst other things, to give purpose to the Commodore's Challenge.


SSC Supported Charity 2022-24 - Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance

In December 2021, the Committee agreed to make Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance (www.hiowaa.org) our charity for the next three years.

The raffle organised and run by John Hamon at 'Pickle Night' in October 2021 raised a remarkable £84. This was donated to the charity.

It is hoped that the charity will be represented at our 'Commodores at Home' in May 2022.

Previously Supported Charities

Specific charities supported in the past have included Toe In The Water and SCaRF (Skin Cancer Research Fund).

In 2018 the Club raised more than £221 for Cash for Kids. The official charity of local radio station Wave 105, it provides support to disabled and disadvantaged children across the South Coast.


From 2019 to 2021, the Club raised £730 for Wetwheels, a charity conceived by Geoff Holt MBE DL. Geoff visited Seafarers in November 2018 to give an inspiring talk about his life and about WetWheels. The charity builds disabled people's confidence by providing access to the sea in specially modified powerboats.
