Thank You to all the Homes, Day Centers and Passengers that take part in our annual Swannery Walk Fundraiser. You are all STARS – we look forward to sailing with you, on Freedom Very Soon.
We have a wonderful time at Abbotsbury Swannery who’s generosity and support is very much appreciated Their kind staff and the experience of seeing – and feeding the Swans with their babies – in such beautiful surroundings is fantastic THANK YOU x
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. We invite the passengers of MV Freedom to participate in the annual sponsored walk at Abbotsbury Swannery planned for June.
