Mon, 06 Nov 2023

Standard Bank has donated £2,000 to Isle of Man charity, Sailing for the Disabled.

Alongside the donation, the bank has also become a Corporate Member of the charity.

The local charity provides experiences through sailing to individuals with disabilities, be they physical, mental, or emotional.

Standard Bank’s donation will contribute towards the purchase of replacement equipment and new items for the yacht, as well as covering operational expenses.

Additionally, the funds will support the charity’s growing number of community service users, particularly community and school groups, supporting the provision of new life jackets and wet weather gear.

Paul Atkinson at Sailing for Disabled said: “Sailing for the Disabled relies on the generosity of organisations like Standard Bank to continue our mission. This contribution will make a significant difference in enabling more individuals to experience the therapeutic benefits of sailing on our yacht Pride of Man III. We are honoured to have Standard Bank as a partner in our journey to create inclusive opportunities for everyone.”

Sailing for Disabled is open to participants aged 12 and over, extending its services to all individuals and community groups facing challenges.
