Childhood's involvement in the Stena Match Cup Sweden
Childhood's status as official charity meant that the organisation's logo was displayed on the boats competing in the Childhood Race, and a percentage of the sponsorship income was donated to Childhood's efforts to support vulnerable children. The annual sailing competition was held on Thursday, with prominent Swedes taking part under the guidance of international sailing professionals. The entrance fees for Innovation Forum were donated to Childhood in their entirety. Find out more about the World Childhood Foundation here.
