Weʼre raising £5,000 to build a new community boatshed.
- Wadebridge, Cornwall
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Camel River Community Boatshed is a not for profit organisation established in November 2015 and is based at Skinner’s Yard on Bradfords Quay in Wadebridge Cornwall. The group exists to create a community around restoring and building wooden boats. The emphasis is on building friendships through common purpose, sharing skills and learning new ones. We work out of an atmospheric wooden shed dating back to 1947 in a historic boatyard on the banks of the Camel River. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts our home is losing it's battle with time and the elements is in need of replacement. We are trying to raise £5000 towards replacing the dirt floor with a concrete base then rebuilding the shed so that it resembles the historic original as closely as possible. All the labour will be freely given by our volunteers. We would be most grateful for any support you may be able to offer. You can follow our work on our Facebook page.

About the fundraiser
I'm a retired military pilot and aviation training consultant. I've been a keen sailor all of my adult life. More recently I have developed an interest in boat building and recognise its value in building a community restoring a sense of purpose in peoples lives.
