Share your fundraising ideas


As a registered charity, Cowes Sailability Club relies on income from fundraising events and sponsorship to cover its annual fuel, training and maintenance costs. So if you have a great idea for a fundraising event, are planning a sponsored activity or have a corporate social responsibility programme, we would love to hear from you.


Organise a fundraising event


Help us raise the money we need to create great days out, by organising a fundraising event with your friends, family, colleagues or community groups. You could arrange a cake sale, coffee morning, fashion show or other social event. Our cheeky, animated club mascot, Horatio Bear, is often available to make guest appearances at events and we are happy to support joint publicity to help you publicise your commitment to our work.

Take on a new challenge


Have you always wanted to parachute from a plane, walk all around the Isle of Wight or take on another adventure? Take inspiration from two ladies who raised money for Cowes Sailability Club by completing brave new challenges. Sue Waddleton did a wing walk and Zena Whiteside abseiled down the Spinnaker Tower.
