Join the Elma Sperry Sailing Challenge 2019,
Thursday 09 May 2019

Support Armed Forces Veterans. Advance your CSR Programme with the Armed Forces Covenant.


A day of sailing on Thursday 09 May 2019 provides an exciting team building opportunity; facilitates networking and supports PTSD Resolution, a charity which improves the quality of life for Veterans, Reservists and Families who are struggling to reintegrate into a normal life because of trauma suffered during service in the armed forces, in a very visible and practical way.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a commitment by public and private sector organisations to acknowledge, understand and support those who serve or have served in the armed forces. Support for the Covenant should be a key part of every Director's CSR (Corporate & Social Responsibility) programme.

At the Elma Sperry Sailing Challenge there will be an evening BBQ and networking opportunity in Hamble village on Wednesday 08 May 2019, with an auction of promises to raise funds for PTSD Resolution; followed by a great day of racing in the Solent.
