'Nellie' is a narrow boat, Tina recently bought her, Tina's Dad is my friend. The accomodation that Tina has recently managed to aquire is a 28 year old 'Narrow Boat' and Tina and 'Nellie' need your help, guidance and funding to make 'Nellie' safe to live on. Tina would never ask for help as she is too commited to helping others. So I'm asking on her behalf. Tina has actively helped thousands of people who where on the edge of the abyss, from several continents. She is an 'unsung heroine' but... I KNOW Tina now needs help herself in order to have a safe place to live and carry on her amazing work.
I'm particularily thinking of Tina's Dad, Peter. Peter Brocklebank served in the Royal Navy for nearly 30 years and was crew on HMS 'Avenger' during the Falklands War as the CPO (Chief Petty Officer) in 'Comm's'. Peter is sadly no longer with us as of 2012. When I last met Peter at a small going away party for Tina, who was leaving for Asia to do more charity work, I promised Peter I would keep in touch with Tina and make sure she was OK. That promise continues... Here's an insight into a fraction of Tina's work.
'Nellie' the boat, needs virtually everthing done to make her habitable. Shower facility including valve and pump, water pump, waste pump, heating via a new gas installation, flooring, internal woodwork, internal walls, more insulation... 'Nellie' will also need an engine service soon and help with some basic fees. Equally important are people visiting 'Nellie' in Skipton to help with basic DIY just in order to allow Tina to get back to helping others...
