Peter Le Marchant Trust

The Peter Le Marchant Trust is a local canal boat charity providing day trips and holidays on the water to a wide range of children and adults who experience health and social issues in their day to day lives. This includes people living with ill health, disabilities and conditions, carers, groups dealing with social issues as well as the elderly and those living in care.
