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.

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. It cost about £5,000 and allows wheelchair access for boat trips on the River Soar.

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.
