Rob da Bank to race around the Isle of Wight
for The Ellen Macarthur Cancer Trust
- please support him by Buying a Mile for The Trust
For the second year running, the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race has the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust as its Official Race Charity, and they have entered four boats into the race,
providing 25 young people in recovery from cancer the opportunity to compete. They will be joined for the race by Ellen MacArthur along with race first-timer, a certain Rob da Bank.
Please support Rob by buying a virtual mile of the race through the ‘Buy a Mile’ scheme. You can buy miles for Rob da Bank, Ellen MacArthur or any of the incredible young people racing you would like to support, from as little as £10.
The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust takes young people aged 8 – 24, who are recovering from cancer and other serious illness on sailing trips throughout the summer. These trips can rebuild the confidence often lost through long periods in hospital, giving the young people a chance to test themselves in a safe and supportive environment.
On 30th June Rob da Bank will be joining the Trust’s crew aboard Moonspray, a GibSea 44. Joining Rob will be the Isle of Wight Radio breakfast presenter Paul Topping, who will broadcast live from the boat throughout the Race.
Other exciting ways to get involved with the Trust in the Race Village this year include a Sports Village, where visitors can have a go with the rowing machine, javelin, badminton and a Wii station.
Also, the easiest way to add to the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust’s fundraising total is through ‘Text to Donate’, just text EMCT00 £5 to 70070. Every penny goes straight to the Trust.
