    Story

    George is a vunrable man who lives on in his boat on the kennet & Avon canal in Wiltshire. Due to some verbally aggressive youngsters who were speeding on hireboats this weeknd his boat is now sinking. This is his home and if the community cant manage to re-float it he will be homeless. If people DO manage to re-float his boat it will need some cash injected to make it habitable again for him.

    Thank you so very much for caring. He is in a very confused state and needs to be left alone with people who know him at the moment.

      George is still in a tent on the towpath unfortunately but he is in high spirits! He has ordered steel and is in the first stages of getting his boat cabin built. He is getting help sourcing boat essentials such as bilge pumps and batteries etc, and we have put plans in place for a wood-burner too. We really need the rain to hold off for long enough to get the steel welded, as that can't be done in the rain. Ideally this would be done in a dry-dock but unfortunately- it is too expensive! Hopefully, the next update will be a happy one!
