Support Us


We currently have over 100 volunteer members of the Trust.

In addition to crewing the Narrowboats (after extensive training) members can be involved in: administration, training, fund raising, maintaining and repairing our narrowboats, indeed all aspects of the Trust. All sailing members are DBS accredited.

We are always seeking new applicants to join the Trust, to work with us to further advance the experience and the services we provide.


We are extremely grateful to all the Groups and individuals who offer us sponsorship and support.
All donations are applied as may be requested, be it providing trips for those who are less fortunate or in keeping our boats in prime condition.
