Float the Boat! Help New Horizons

Stockport Canal Boat Trust needs help to keep their boat, New Horizons, afloat. New Horizons offers canal day trips for people with disabilities around the canals of North West England aboard the specially designed, wheelchair friendly, canal narrow boat.

To keep New Horizons afloat the Trust needs to raise over £10k per year in addition to monies gained from the cost of trips. To help to do this they are launching the ‘Float the Boat’ Sponsorship Scheme’.

New Horizons has been divided into 200 sections port and starboard. A donation of £10 sponsors one section. You will know the approximate location of the part you sponsor.
