Gift of joy


Virtual Gift: Instantly downloadable gift voucher

Through watersports, children develop confidence, team-working skills and compassion for each other. They also have a lot of fun!

This is the gift of grinning faces, of laughter drifting across the water, of jumping in, capsizing and getting right back up again.   

The difference you’ll make

This gift could cover the cost of one child’s subsidised sailing session out on the Helford River or at Trevassack Lake through their primary school, including the cost of the equipment, vessels and support of our skilled and supportive instructors. It could be a young person’s first ever time on the water; a real chance to forget any worries and inspire a lifetime love of watersports. 

“I really love sailing, it’s so much fun! I love being able to play in the water with all my friends!!! And learning how to do new things like sailing, capsizing and kayaking!” – CST Subsided Sailor 

Buying a Children’s Sailing Trust virtual gift supports our life-affirming charity work with young people, whether you choose to keep it for yourself or send it to a friend as a unique gift that does a whole lot of good.

What you’ll get

Once purchased, you’ll be able to access a digital donation voucher to immediately download, send across to a loved one or to print at home. If you would prefer a physical copy to be sent in the post, please drop an email to and we would be happy to get that sorted for you.

How virtual gifts help

If you order any of our virtual gifts, you will be making a general donation of the amount you have selected directly to support the work of Children’s Sailing Trust. Neither you, nor the recipient of your virtual gift voucher, will receive the item described above. Your donation will help Children’s Sailing Trust run financially affordable and physically accessible watersports sessions for young people on the Helford River and at Trevassack Lake. The information shown on the virtual gift voucher is a guide only of how your donation will be used.
