The Mary Sunley Canal Boat Charity

Charity No.1044980

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.
