Invitation to the
Hampton Court Model Yacht Club
Annual IOM Open Charity Event
On Sunday 5th January, HCMYC is hosting its annual IOM Open Charity Event to raise funds for the club’s chosen charity, Momentum, a local charity which provides help to children undergoing treatment for cancer. To date, the club has raised over £2700 from our annual Charity IOM events.
We would like to invite IOM sailors to come and join us to race and support this good cause. We do not charge race entry fees, but instead invite all who attend, either as competitors, officials or spectators, to make a donation to the charity.
The club will be serving bacon butties before racing commences, hot soup at lunchtime and teas and coffees, the proceeds of which will also be donated to Momentum.
We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible for a good day’s sailing in the beautiful setting of Hampton Court and to support a very worthy cause.
The Notice of Race is set out below and on our website: www.hcmyc.org.
If you are unable to attend but would still like to help us support the charity, donations can be made by internet banking direct to the Club’s bank account (Sort Code 40-20-26, account No. 01143476) using the reference “charity”.
About our chosen charity, “Momentum”
“Momentum” is a charity established in 2004 which aims to help children (up to the age of 17) undergoing treatment for cancer in Surrey and South West London. “Momentum” supports not only these children but the whole family; parents, siblings and grandparents. By establishing close links to the families they can identify ways to help that fit their specific needs. Support continues as long as the family needs it.
