£2,000 to train volunteers
Wirral Community Narrowboat Trust provides opportunities for disabled adults, children with physical conditions or learning difficulties to socialise and experience life outside of a day centre or special school. Each year, 3,000 clients benefit from canal cruises operated by fully trained volunteers. Their boats are specially adapted for people with a disability and are maintained by over 100 volunteers.
PH Holt is funding volunteer training for 15 new crew members, 10 skippers, a senior trainer and a rolling First Aid programme.
