Mary Sunley Boat Trips
A report and photos from recent Mary Sunley Boat Trips.
The Mary Sunley Canal Boat Charity
For a number of years, the Rotary club has been represented on the Mary Sunley Trust
and also sponsored a number of trips each year on the Sunley Canal Boat,
Disabled residents from local care homes are taken on a day trip along the Macclesfield canal.
The trust has recently taken delivery of a brand new canal boat "Sunley 2"
Here are a few pictures of this fine vessel, which is fully fitted with a lift
and adequate access for wheel chair passengers.
The group as shown are members of Rotary Club of Wilmslow Dean
having just returned from a trip on the boat before this year's programme gets on the way.

Hawthorns Care - 17/5
Cavendish Court Care - 15/6
Eden Mansions Care - 5/7

We fully financed all trips i.e. boat and lunch costs other than the last Cavendish trip, when only lunch was paid for.
