Update - This has now closed.
The crowdfunder raised over £18,000 and so far the Westminster Boating Base has survived the pandemic 🙂
Thank you to all those who participated.
Help SAVE the Westminster Boating Base (WBB), a kids charity and WIN a large canvas print of London. Make a donation of £10 or more for your chance to win.
The WBB is a charity which gives children and young adults the opportunity to learn to sail and kayak on the central London River Thames, at Pimlico in London, for just £15 per year! But because of the Coronavirus lockdown, the WBB has no income and is running a crowdfunder campaign to keep it afloat until it can re-open.
A LARGE CANVAS PRINT from the RIVER WITHIN - LONDON exhibition
Here are the canvas prints you can choose from:
Imagine a beautiful, large canvas print featuring London, in your home. That print having been taken from the perspective of a little kayak. Each canvas that you can choose from was exhibited at the Riverside Gallery in Richmond last autumn. These are the actual prints that were on the walls. It will be a striking addition to any room and great above your settee or above your bed. One lucky person is going to win this canvas – there are eight to choose from…..
Why suppot the Westminster Boating Base?
Not only does the WBB give children and young adults the opportunity to learn to sail and kayak in central London for just £15 per year, but they also do a lot of work with disadvantaged children and local schools. They offer very low fee sessions for the over fifties and sessions for younger adults too. Everyone over the age of ten can learn to sail and paddle kayaks and canoes on the central London River Thames. It’s great for developing water based skills and confidence, fitness, an understanding and respect for water, an appreciation of the natural environment, teamwork and strong friendships. All sessions are ran by qualified instructors.
