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.


Paddle Steamer Waverley is the Last Sea Going Paddle Steamer in the world and gives countless pleasure to thousands of people every year and can be seen in many Coastal Area's of the UK and Ireland . She celebrates 70 years since her inaugural cruise in 1947 . With sadness 2017 has not been a good season for the ship with a few cruises cancelled for one reason or another but the biggest issue was an air pump failure at the height of the Glasgow Fair cruises and then on 25/08/2017 the ship had an accident at Rothesay due to a rope being tangled around the Paddle leaving the ship moving forward where she collided with a small concrete slipway next to the promenade . Waverley bounced off the slip but sustained damage to her bow/stem and has had to be rushed to Dry Dock for immediate repairs . More than ever due to the lost revenue of the cancelled sailings I would appreciate your donation to make sure Waverley Excursions Ltd is helped with what must be an onerous time at present . Food and Beverage takings all effected and a Crew that must still be paid are only a part of the daily running of Waverley and many tickets have had to be refunded . Please donate what you can and make sure Waverley sails into the 21st Century and beyond . Thank You in advance

    As we are soon to leave 2017 behind and look forward to a BETTER year ahead I have decided to ramp up the Goal amount to £10000 . This will ensure lost revenue from last year . Although its only a small amount it is a big help . Thanks in Advance , Graeme

    Waverley is now cruising the South Coast 2017 Schedule with cruises from Southampton , Yarmouth and Weymouth . Later this week she will make her way up to London for her Thames Cruises . The Public must realise that due to MCA Rules and Regulations her operating perimeter is very weather dependant and this can have a massive blow to revenue . I ask for your continued support of this wonderful Ship and make sure 2018 is far more lucrative than 2017 has been .
