The difference a Daydream makes.....

I was gifted Daydream by a Gentleman who spent his last 2 months of life on her, it was his dying wish that the boat be given to someone prepared to offer it as a beautiful tranquil space for others.

The purpose of Daydream is to provide free narrowboat trips and a tranquil space for people with terminal diagnosis or for those affected by cancer. Daydream has given a place to relax, share, cry, love and probably the most important, to laugh and make memories. The trips are about 4 hours long to include a free lunch. This is a very personal experience as we only take up to 4 passengers at a time. Sometimes people are happy to just visit for an hour or 2, to talk and relax in a perfect, peaceful setting. Either way Daydream is making a difference ...

My time and refreshments are given freely, however I am in need of some support in funding the £4k annual cost of insurances, boating licence, mooring fees, maintenance and fuel.

If you are able, your help would be much appreciated.

Big thank you x
