There are lots of ways to support Horizons
We need your help fundraising to keep Horizons on the water!
Did you know that it costs about £2,500 a week to keep Horizons running?
Horizons does not receive any statutory funding from the Government or Local Authority. In order to keep our projects going it is essential that we raise income through public donations, and charity funding grants. There are lots of local charities doing great work in their communities, so it can be very competitive to get funding from charitable trusts and grant giving bodies.
Horizons fundraiser, Kathy, and our team work hard to secure the income needed to keep Horizons afloat, and we would welcome your help and support.
Recent Capital Fundraising Projects
In 2022-2023 Horizons was able to raise funds to replace our two Bahia dinghies, which were both over 15 years old and in a deteriorating condition. The Bahia’s are a firm favourite during our club and training sessions, and it will be wonderful to have the two new dinghies in our fleet for the 2023 season.
In 2020-2022 we were successful in raising £36,361 to purchase a third safety boat for our fleet. This will help us to ensure the safety of all our participants out on the water, and means we can expand our activities to include more young people. The new boat will be named “Skippy” and is due to join our fleet for the 2023 sailing season.
