Filming for our Jubilee Sailing Trust film all this week. First of all to Treloar’s College in Alton Hampshire (close by Alan Titchmarsh’s latest, immaculate garden!) to film with Jerry Cullum, head of the business centre at the college, who helped pupil Ryan to go to sea with the Trust. Treloar’s is a purpose-built college especially for disabled students. Very smart and new. That’s because the college made a smart move a while back, selling a former property at a good price and building the new college from the ground up. It’s spacious, light and airy. Jerry talks about how the voyage made big changes in Ryan, who lives with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Didn’t stop him sailing the world aboard Lord Nelson though! Thank you Lorna Woodcroft of Treloar’s, who set all this up with extraordinary speed and efficiency.
