The, ‘Friends of MV Freedom’ fundraise throughout the year. We apply for national and regional grants and ask for donations from local businesses and organisations. Many loyal companies have collection pots, which help raise awareness of the Boat as well as funds – we are always amazed and grateful for the generosity of Weymouth and Portland folk.
We are widely supported by our local community who generously participate in sponsored events such as the Christmas Harbour swim, the Newton Cove Annual swim and the very exciting new Paddle Board event on Weymouth beach..
