The Coronavirus crisis has highlighted to the whole nation the value of carers, whether working in care homes, day centres, or in the community – professional or voluntary. They have had little time to relax during the crisis and as front-line workers are undoubtedly facing danger.
Caring for Carers is our small way of saying THANK YOU.
The Bruce Boats at Bedwyn Wharf provide holidays and day trips on the Kennet and Avon Canal for vulnerable, disabled, elderly, and disadvantaged people in specially designed wheelchair-friendly broad-beam canal boats.
Through Caring for Carers we are offering several sponsored day trips with FREE places for carers, professional or voluntary, paid or unpaid. The trips will be aboard one of our specially equipped wide-beam canal boats during 2021. If you are a carer, or would like to nominate a carer for a free place, please contact us soon to make a reservation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org giving the name of your care home, day centre, care organisation or supporting body.
Each trip will cruise along the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal in the heart of Wiltshire, gliding through peaceful countryside and stopping for lunch in a secluded spot. Trips will run alongside our usual hire programme once restrictions are lifted and it is safe to operate – but bookings can be made now. Each carer will be able to invite one friend or family member to accompany them.
If you’d like to sponsor a day trip, please contact email@example.com
