The Coal  Runs


The sale of solid fuels to customers on boats and in waterside properties is the Trusts main source of income, funding the maintenance of the boats.

Loading and unloading the boats on the twice yearly coal runs is central to the fund raising activities.

Without people to crew the boats this activity is at risk - contact us to arrange to join the boats for a day or longer.
