Jubilee Sailing Trust Emergency Appeal - update

Central - 05 Jul 19 General

Please see the exciting update from the Trustees of the Jubille Sailing Trust.


Dear Friends, Supporters and Colleagues,

WE DID IT!!! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!

On behalf of beneficiaries and everyone at the JST, I cannot thank you enough for your truly brilliant support this week. As we go to press, I can confirm we have raised £1,068,000 and the donations are still coming in!!

The response to our emergency appeal has been absolutely amazing. From difficult circumstances, your extremely generous support has given our work a much brighter future. We are so grateful to everyone who has got behind our campaign, both with messages of encouragement and also donations.

It has been great to hear from so many people who have been positively impacted by our work across our forty decades of operation. It has reinvigorated the JST family and reinforced the importance of our mission, and why it must continue.
Our Trustees will now meet on Monday July 8th to review the outcome of this week’s campaign and determine the future of the organisation based on the progress made this week. No doubt, it will be a much more positive discussion having exceeded fundraising our target.
Nevertheless, important decisions will now need to be made in order to get the JST onto the strongest possible footing and to avoid this situation ever arising again in the future. It is imperative our work can be enjoyed by many generations to come.
This week has made me prouder than ever to be part of this wonderful organisation. I have been overwhelmed by the support from our volunteers, donors and our wonderful team. My deep gratitude to you all.

Right, I think it is time for a large glass of wine and a long sleep!!!

Warmest regards,

Duncan
