Members of the Rotary Club of  The Wreake Valley, through fund raising activities including our charity run - the Watermead Challenge,  sponsored a disability lift for the new canal boat - SUNBEAM II, which is run by Leicestershire Disability Charity, MOSAIC .  2 members of Wreake Valley are also volunteers with MOSAIC and we therefore have close ties with them and the canal boat.

The Lift was delivered and installed in the boat during the initial build phase in Nuneaton, before the boat was delivered to Thurmaston for the fit-out.

20180525 104041   The lift, which cost 5,000,  is an integral part of the boat giving wheelchair users access to the boat and trips on the River So

The boat was officially launched by the High Sheriff of Leicester at the Hope & Anchor in Syston in June 2018 and will run day trips on the waterways from Thurmaston.
