Community Friend

‘Community Friend’ status is available to community organisations and community trusts for a donation of £500 per year.  Being a Community Friend gives your organisation’s members access to the same benefits as an Individual Friend.

You will receive the Friends Newsletter four times a year to​ keep you updated about our ongoing projects and charitable work ​and inform you about forthcoming ​events. This is an electronic newsletter and can be sent directly to up to five members of your organisation (and forwarded on to as many as you want).

Friends events include evening cruises, special cruises, attending river events such as the Great River Race, Friends recruitment parties, open days and much more.

Friends are also able to hire the Venturer at preferential rates for a three hour or day-long ​cruise for up to 12 people, or a static event for up to 50 people. Friends hire is available at times the boat is not being used for charitable activity – usually evenings and weekends.
