108. Defying the Odds: Natasha Lambert

The sailor who overcomes cerebral palsy to raise thousands for the RNLI

Determined. Courageous. Dedicated. All words that describe Natasha – a sailor from the Isle of Wight, born with athetoid cerebral palsy – whose sailing adventures have helped raise an incredible £28K for the RNLI.

Natasha’s condition means she needs help 24 hours a day, but sailing gives her a great sense of freedom. It’s something she can make decisions about independently – and we hear why it means so much to her. Learn about the sailing school that she set up to help people with similar needs to experience the same feeling of freedom she enjoys.
