Annual sponsorship continued for Autism on the Water

Confidence

After supporting Autism on the Water (AOTW) in 2021 with a £5,000 donation, Community Windpower are continuing their financial support for AOTW into 2022.

Edinburgh-based AOTW will use this year’s £5,000 to help fund the commercial coding of Confidence (the charities boat), the Big Crinan Canal Event in May 2022 and the AOTW Open Day at the Royal Forth Yacht Club.

A fruitful year ahead is planned for AOTW after their boats were out of the water through the pandemic. AOTW recently attended No 10 Downing Street to celebrate the ‘Best of Scotland’ alongside other delegates and charities from Scotland.

Murray MacDonald, founding member of AOTW, said: “We have a busy year ahead at AOTW and the continued support from Community Windpower will help us with our vision.

“We are delighted that Community Windpower have continued their support to us, after helping us with the cost of the first refurbishments of Confidence”.

“This year’s funding will help with our annual events, our open day at the Royal Forth Yacht Club and getting Confidence commercially coded”.

Diane Wood, Community Benefits Director at Community Windpower, voiced: “When we received an update from Murray in the new year, we knew straight away we wanted to continue our support for Scotland’s leading charity helping people with autism through the sport of sailing.

“We hope that the funding can help Murray and his amazing team achieve all that is planned for AOTW in 2022 for the benefit of young people with autism, as well as increasing awareness to the autism spectrum.

“We look forward to seeing updates from the team and how the group have enjoyed the experiences throughout the year”.
