New Horizons' News

Here's the latest news from New Horizons.

Great News

We were nominated to receive funding from the #madelocal fund with the support of @carling, @robbiesbrewery and @SembleUK. And we have been successful!

The funds will go towards the creation of a new wet room and some waterproof clothing for volunteers. As you probably know, it gets very wet out there and our skipper and volunteers deserve a nice warm space to dry off and some lovely new clothing. We will update you on the progress of the project when we get started.

So thank you for the nomination and thank you to @carling, @robbiesbrewery and @SembleUK and the #madelocal fund.
