Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Royal Daffodil was a famous Mersey Ferry she has not been used for 4 years. Owners Merseytravel have kindly agreed to let her go but it is a strong possibility that she will be broken up.
The Mersey Ferries have been a life long tradition of crossing the mersey and cruising. We want to give her a new life by preserving her. She was built at Cammell Laird Ship yard on the Mersey as MV Overchurch in 1962 before later obtaining the name Royal Daffodil.
The Overchurch as she was known once carried Princess Alexandra to open the new Cammell Laird Dry Dock. We want to ensure that this vessel is kept as she should be in a Merseyside Dock and so that her history is carried on for future generations to enjoy and understand.
