A new venture for Hazel

In between Hazel welcoming folk aboard for well-being trips she is earning a little money and getting well known by having folk to stay who pay a commercial rate.

At Christmas a group of friends stayed aboard and were pleased enough to write this review…….” My five friends and I had a great stay for two nights over new year in Hazel docked at the Portland Basin. Chris was a wonderful host: friendly, chatty, helpful, always reachable by phone, and flexible. We commuted into Manchester easily both days to explore and enjoy the nightlife. There is an ASDA superstore a five minute walk away. The kitchen on Hazel is very well equipped. We found the boat very well equipped. I certainly recommend a holiday on Hazel if you’re looking for something fun and a little bit different.”

So – spread the word !!!

THE WOODEN CANAL BOAT SOCIETY IS IN THE RUNNING FOR FUNDING IN GOOD NEIGHBOUR COMMUNITY PROGRAMME

The Wooden Canal Boat Society, has been shortlisted to receive funding of £2000 from Provident’s Good Neighbour Community Programme.

It is one of nine organisations to be shortlisted across Central UK, and you are invited to vote to decide on the winners until 25th September.

You can cast your votes at

www.providentgoodneighbour.co.uk/vote-for-your-community

until 25th September 2016.

They will use the money towards a much needed van if they receive the most votes.

Provident’s Good Neighbour Programme recognises the projects or organisations which make a real difference to their local communities. It invested more than £1 million into communities across the UK during 2015. The Wooden Canal Boat Society believe their work makes a real difference in the local community by providing opportunities for better mental health of volunteers and also those who go for trips on Hazel, their Well-Being boat. ‘’We would love to do even better work in the area with the help of this funding, which will help us purchase a much needed ‘new-to-us’ van for collection of donations for our shop, delivery of goods bought there and general fetching and carrying of all the items our old boats need’’

Andy Parkinson, Provident Home Credit Director, commented:  “Our Good Neighbour Programme is all about recognising projects and organisations, no matter how small, which bring about positive changes in their communities. W.C.B.S. is a perfect example of precisely that, and we have been thrilled to see so many nominations from local residents. “Provident agents have always worked closely within the communities in which we operate, and we see first-hand the importance of community spirit. We’re encouraging the people of Tameside to vote for their local organisations to receive funding to continue their great work.”
