Next Steps: Trevassack Lake Water Sports Centre for ALL

The Trust began teaching young people with special educational needs and disabilities in 2007. Demand for our activities has increased steadily, and the Trust now teaches over 60 young people with disabilities a year. With your help we could do more…

HRCST has exciting plans to build an inclusive water sports centre on a 26-acre site at Trevassack Lake on the Lizard Peninsula. The development will incorporate a Learning Centre with double-height classrooms for rigging lessons, a sensory room and disabled facilities (including a high dependency changing unit) and 7 adapted holiday lodges for families with disabled children.

The Learning Centre will be fully accessible with facilities and kitchen servery making the site a year-round, all-weather amenity.

The Lake will be fitted out with hoists and pontoons at the waterside to enable young people with severe disabilities to access adapted sailing dinghies, kayaks, power boats and the Trust’s unique floating classroom. The sheltered, non-tidal water will also make this a perfect site for any cautious beginner to learn different types of water sports.

Trevassack Lake will provide the Trust with a permanent base for offices and staff – something that has been a long-held ambition for us. But it’s important to emphasise that providing sailing lessons on Helford River will remain at the heart of what we do. Our vision is that learning water sports on the lake will encourage more people to try sailing and water sports on the river, while giving those who for practical reasons can’t access the open water, the opportunity to learn in a safe environment.

The Trust is seeking donations towards this £3.5M project. To date, the Trust has raised enough funds to purchase the lake and has pledges for half the £1.2M build cost of the Learning Centre.

We welcome donations of any size to help us achieve our ambitious plans. To make a one-off donation go to the Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust website. To make a regular donation or find out more about the project, contact Helen Bishop-Stephens, Fundraising Manager on helen@nullhrcst.org.ukor 07555 785102.
