Rudyard Sailability’s boathouse is nearing completion

Rudyard Sailability, a charity that organises sailing and other water-based activities for disabled people is holding a Burn’s Supper this Saturday (2 February) to help raise funds to finish their boathouse.

The accessible boathouse, that has been built to provide a new home for a fleet of boats that can be sailed by disabled people, as well as providing much needed training and changing facilities, is set on Rudyard Lake, near Leek in Staffordshire and is nearing completion. The charity is now holding a ‘Highland Fling’ to raise funds for final work on the boathouse.

Taking place on Saturday, 2nd February 2013, from 7pm at Horton Village Hall, Horton, ST13 8PU, the supper is open to all supporters and tickets cost £10 per adult and £5 per child.

Tickets can be bought on the night (bring your own drinks), but it would be helpful to the charity for anyone intending to come along to email the charity so that catering can be arranged. Please mention if you would require a vegetarian option. There will be Scottish music and dancing; a haggis supper; chocolate bingo; raffle and much more….

Don’t delay and book today on secretary@rudyardsailability.org.uk
