During the pandemic, a retired couple from St Ives in Cambridge set themselves a challenge to build a barrow boat. As lifetime boat enthusiasts they wanted to build something that they could gift to a local charity. The generous couple have chosen to donate the boat to help support the life-saving work of the East Anglian Air Ambulance. With summer in full swing, EAAA are holding a raffle to win the barrow boat, with 100% of the proceeds from the raffle being used to fund critical care missions.
Jones’ Boatyard are kindly displaying the boat ahead of Bedford River Festival taking place 23-24 July.
