We are fundraising for money towards cosmetic improvements to our 72 year old boat.
She has been owned by Peter Richardson since 1 February 1982 and now his son Sam is running the business with him. In this time Peter has never had to ask for help but last winter was a particularly harsh one with the ‘beast from the East’ hitting hard, our pay box was destroyed in the terrible weather and so the funds that were put aside for cosmetic improvements, were used for that.
The task that is number one on the list (and has been for a number of years) is to have the seat cushions replaced from inside the boat as these are looking dated and are very worn. Every year for the past 8 or so, Peter has wanted to fix these, but maintaining a boat as old as this can be very costly and as such there have been more pressing matters such as structural and engine maintenance of this vessel that take priority. Therefore, year after year, the cushions keep moving back down the list.
We would really love your help to please assist us to replace these cushions and if we have any extra to our target it will help to further improve passenger comfort and convenience.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
