Charity Auction - 4th August

Dear Members The Charity Auction will be held at the Clubhouse on Sunday 4th August. I have started to send out letters asking for donation's to various marina’s, chandleries, restaurants etc but I would really appreciate your help. Do you have a contact that you, or I could approach for a donation? Do you have a skill and are prepared to donate your time? Have you got any items on the boat, in the garage or house that you no longer require? My daughter Lucy is a teacher at Mary Hare and I have chosen the Mary Hare Primary School appeal to benefit from the proceeds of the Auction. Mary Hare is a Registered Charity and is the largest national school for deaf children in the UK. Mary Hare provides an outstanding education for some 240 deaf children and young people each year. The school teaches children aged 5-18 years, from all over the country and Northern Ireland, so the majority of the children are residential. Lucy is Head of Year 10 and a Science Teacher in the Senior School. With 1 in 1000 babies born in the UK each year with a severe to profound hearing loss, and others losing their hearing through illness, she knows just how important it is to give deaf children the education they deserve. The Primary School is currently in a grade 2 listed building but it is difficult to maintain and expensive to modernise. Mary Hare are passionate about the children in their care and they know they could do so much more for them if they had a purpose built Primary School situated on the same site as the Senior School at Snelsmore Common, Newbury. The appeal for the new Primary School was launched in 2017 but they still have some way to go and that’s where you come in! Lucy will give a short presentation before the Auction. We are hoping that the Headmaster and also one of Lucy’s students will also be able to attend. Please put the 4th August on your calendar and let’s see if the Windsor Yacht Club can raise some funds for this great charity. If you need any further information about the Auction or my chosen Charity, please let me know. Thanking you in advance Robin Bartropp Commodore The Windsor Yacht Club
