How do we raise money?

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..  

Below is a list of many of our supporters

Weymouth Town Council –  Lions Club –  Weymouth and Portland Rotary – Odd-fellows – Masons –  Sea Cadets – Pilgrim House  – Round Table – Santander – Came Down Golf Course – Dean and Reddyhoff – Abbotsbury Swannery – For Motion –  – Active Mobility – Highclere House – Sand World – Sea Gull – Marlborough and Daniels fish and chips – Asda – Weymouth Mobility –  Weymouth Deli – Bennetts fish and chip shop – CO-OP – Morrisons – Marks & Spencer – Dorset for Singing – Ladies in Waiting – Echo’s Gannett Foundation – Desert Rose Foundation – Clare Milne Trust – Portland Port, St John’s Place, Garfield Weston Foundation, Alice Ellen Cooper Dean Foundation, Joan Turner Foundation, Weymouth Pavilion, Association of Wrens, Trinity House, The Dorset Jaguar Club, The Waterloo PH Weymouth, The Dolphin Hotel, and Hostelries and Taverns, all around the Harbour and throughout Weymouth and Portland and last but not least, the very loyal and generous folk of Weymouth and Portland.
