Support Us

We are a charitable organisation that does not receive any Government funding. We rely entirely on hire fees, donations and funder support to continue providing our services.

The charity provides a unique opportunity for people with disabilities to enjoy boating on the river, along with their friends,  families, and carers.

By making a donation, or fundraising for us, you can help us do more great work and brighten the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.

How Your Money Helps

Your donations help us to:

  • Continue to provide high quality, well-maintained, adapted canal boats that enable disabled people, groups, and their families to enjoy the river.
  • Upgrade the features and facilities on board our boats and add new ones to further enhance the experience of our users.
  • Keep our hire rates as low as possible so that our service is both affordable and accessible to as many disabled users as possible.

Ultimately your contributions help to enhance the lives and well-being of people with disabilities. Please support us in this great work by making a donation today! Thank you!!!
