We are currently raising money for the Tenby Lugger.
We need to raise £750 over the next 8 weeks so that we can purchase an additional Storm Mainsail in time for the next sailing season. Having a storm mainsail would give us greater flexibility in working with inexperienced groups. If 75 people give £10, we will reach our target so please donate at our new Localgiving page;
Please try it out!
Would you like to help us unlock £200 of free money? We are very excited to share our online donation page with you! This means it is now really easy for anyone to support us wherever they are. We also have the opportunity for the first £200 we raise online to be doubled! So if you would like to support us then now is the perfect time to do so. For example £2 will become £4 (or £4.50 withgift aid)! We would be so grateful for any support you can give - even just sharing this Facebook post. Are you able to give this gift to your community?
