We had a very busy 2019, celebrating 30 years of the River Thames Boat Project. Thank you to everyone that supported us at our events and helped to raise much needed funds.
We had to put 2020 events on hold in March due to the COVID-19 situation and government restrictions. Before the first lockdown in March 2020, we enjoyed the following fundraising activities in January and February: two short cruises for Friends, volunteers and supporters; our first RTBP Quiz Night which raised just under £1,300; a film night onboard Thames Venturer; a busy waterstation manned by volunteers at the Hampton Court Half Marathon with a great RTBP runner Phil, taking part.
We were delighted to be back on the river in September with some education days and a couple of cruises. Group events and activities were still not possible, but we gathered together via Zoom for our AGM in November and a Volunteer Christmas Social in December.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us in these difficult times.
For the first few months of 2021, we have plans for a Quiz Night via Zoom, some more runners who have agreed to raise funds for RTBP plus a river based sponsored activity – walk/run/cycle/kayak/paddleboard. We also hope to do some short cruises for volunteers and Friends provided restrictions allow.
More details to follow soon….
