Our clients are very often from disadvantaged backgrounds and struggle to make more than a token financial contribution to their stay aboard Blue Mermaid.


As a charitable trust, we are constantly fundraising and are most grateful to the companies, organisations and individuals who support us.

If you would like to make a donation now to support the work of the charity please click here:

We have a general fund that supports our everyday running costs, a bursary scheme that ensures no one is precluded from joining us on financial grounds and our Blue Mermaid Sustainability Fund, which supports our new Thames sailing barge. If you like what you see on this website, please consider supporting us in one of the following ways.

If you would like to make a regular donation to us by standing order please download the standing order form, which also allows us to reclaim Gift Aid.

If you prefer to donate by post or BACS it would be appreciated if your payment is sent together with a Gift Aid declaration form, which is available here.

To donate via BACS please use the details below:

Legacy giving

Could you consider leaving a small legacy to Sea-Change Sailing Trust?

If you have already made a will but would like to leave a gift to Sea-Change Sailing Trust, you can do so by making a simple addition to your existing will called a codicil.

By adding this supplement to your will you can include new instructions and delete old ones without having to go through the task of revoking the whole will.
