Seagull Trust Cruises, a registered charity, is entirely staffed by volunteers and relies upon the generosity of supporters to maintain and develop its activities.

We rely upon the financial support of individuals, businesses and other interested bodies whose support is highly appreciated. 100% of donations are used for charitable purposes.

We welcome donations of all sizes from individual and businesses and every penny really can help us to make a difference. Many of our passengers are able to make small donations which helps to defray the day to day costs amounting to around £50 every time one of our boats sets out with a group on board, and we do over 20,000 trips each year. Our specially designed and equipped boats cost between £100,000 and £250,000 and are frequently named after the benefactors and donors who have helped us with capital costs. We also have two dry docks, boathouses and offices that have been built with historic fundraising efforts.

If you would like to be part of our story – please consider what you might be able to do, whether by legacy, sponsorship or donation.
