Here's the latest news from New Horizons.

Presentation by Sue Slater.

Supporter of the boat and keen runner Sue Slater came down to the boatyard on August 29th along with her husband to present a cheque to us, the proceeds from her sponsored running of three marathons. Receiving the cheque, for an amazing £1059-00, on behalf of the trust were James, Peter, Joan and David, they in return presented Sue with a bouquet and champagne  as a token of thanks for her efforts in supporting us.

Last Wednesday we welcomed William along as a volunteer for the day on New Horizons. This was all part of his involvement in Volunteer Week. He had a great time on the boat helping with a trip and meeting various volunteers and passengers.
