Weʼre raising £2,500 to Help repair the Horning Foot Ferry

Norfolk Broads

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

The Horning Foot Ferry has been running for centuries in one form or another, taking holiday makers and locals from Horning across the River Bure to Woodbastick Staithe. In the last 20 years its history has been somewhat chequered and there have been years when it hasn't operated. I took it on this year and have realised how important this service is to the community and holidaymakers alike and how it could do much more for the area as a "water taxi". We have been awarded money from a local community fund to be able to pay the higher toll required by the Broads Authority. Now, we need money to repair or replace the engine on the Ferry, as it's becoming unreliable and worn out. Woodwork on the Ferry also needs replacing and money for extra insurance is needed.
