Waverley COVID-19 Relief Appeal Approaches Half-Way Mark

Waverley Excursions today issued the following COVID-19 Relief Appeal update:

[quote name=”Waverley Excursions Ltd.”]The COVID-19 Relief Appeal has now reached £160,000 thanks to donations received from individuals. With a target of £350,000 to be raised from individual donations we are fast approaching the half-way mark which is fantastic.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has donated so far, you are giving us hope that Waverley can survive COVID and sail again next summer. The Virtual Donor Wall is building well with many names now recorded. Click the link and view your name!

The success of our COVID-19 Appeal is vital to raise the money needed to cover winter costs associated with the routine maintenance and Waverley’s annual dry docking. She is now booked into dry dock in April but we must have all funds in place before she steams down river to Greenock. During dry docking full repairs will be made to the bow, fortunately the cost of these repairs is covered by insurance.
