An eight-year-old boy from Hitchin who is currently undergoing treatment for lymphoblastic leukaemia took part in an inspirational sailing trip with the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.

Oliver Flynn joined the crew of a yacht for a four-day sailing adventure around the Solent on the south coast.

He said: “I’m not very keen on water, but as soon as I arrived I had so much fun.

“I’ll definitely come back!”

The trips provide a test for youngsters, and encourage them to work as a team.
