12-year-old Bailey Hancock from Worksop joined the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust for an inspirational five-day adventure including sailing, canoeing, cycling, archery and power-kiting at the Essex Outdoors Centre.

Bailey, who finished cancer treatment in July 2013 for Acute lymphocytic leukemia at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, was joined by 23 other young people from around the UK in recovery from cancer.

Having first sailed with the Trust in 2013, Bailey said: “I wanted to come to meet friends and do activities. I came last year and had so much fun that I wanted to come back. It makes it easier that other people here have been through similar experiences, so they understand.”
