My Sponsors

A huge thank you to all of the people who have generously sponsored me.

All the logos you see around this site and on the advert are angels/sponsors who are supporting me in this. The response I’ve received has been humbling… genuine kindness and care from everyone. All these companies, all the Macmillan team and all the researchers that carry out the work that we all end up benefiting from, ultimately comes down to people who have made a decision to help.

This is no sales pitch, but all these wine producers are helping me and supporting my sail, so next time you are doing your supermarket shop if you see any of these wines, please think about popping a couple into your trolley. “What goes around, comes around ….”
