Ships ahoy for Demelza siblings

10 August 2018
Brothers and sisters of children supported by Demelza had a fab time when they attended a two day sailing course on the River Thames.
 
Four children took part, aged eight to 14, with them all passing a Royal Yachting Association course at the Ahoy Centre in Deptford. The weather was extremely hot but the youngsters managed to keep cool with regular water fights.
 
Demelza supports the whole family, holding regular events and outings for siblings.
 
Family Support Worker Teresa Motton said: “During the two days the children went out on the River Thames and learnt the basics of sailing. It was a fantastic couple of days with some great children.”
 
The cost of the course for each child was mostly funded by the Ahoy Centre, with Demelza only having to pay a small charge for each participant.
