Since 1978, the Trust has expanded both in terms of locations, the number of boats within the fleet and the number of cruises carrying passengers. All of this has been accomplished through the efforts of a willing team of volunteers and supporters. The Trust is proud to recognise those individuals and organisations whose support has been invaluable to the charity’s ongoing success:

Over the years the Trust has been the beneficiary of the generosity of a wide range of supporters. Individual donations, grants, corporate donations, legacy gifts and support in kind have all been gratefully received. Without this support it would be impossible for the work which the charity undertakes could happen – Thank you.

Every donation, no matter how small makes a very real difference, but each year we are happy to recognise particular acts of generosity. Some of these supporters have been long-term friends; others have been able to help on particular projects, or for a particular period of time.
