Headway Norfolk and Waveney clients recently embarked on a 3-day sailing trip with the Nancy Oldfield Trust, an experience that will be etched in their memories for years to come. Smooth sailing and unforgettable memories were the order of the day, as the clients enjoyed the fresh sea air and learned all about sailing.

The Nancy Oldfield volunteers were simply fantastic, going above and beyond to ensure that the clients had an incredible experience. With the wind in their hair and sunshine on their faces, the clients learned all about the importance of the wind on a boat's sails and enjoyed the feeling of being in control of the boat.

"Our clients had an amazing time during their 3-day sailing trip at Nancy Oldfield cottages," said Gaynor Doy, Area Manager from Headway Norfolk and Waveney. "They loved taking the helm and feeling in control of the boat, and can't stop talking about their adventure."
