Our project has delivered a working boathouse and associated indoor facilities; in early 2023 we completed fitting out the 2nd floor as a gym. Our attention is now turning to designing and fundraising for a permanent canoe store and the fit out of the 1st floor of our main building. The 1st floor fit out will be done in stages but eventually there will be meeting rooms, additional accessible toilets, showers and changing room, kitchen, lounge area, multi-purpose hall, balcony and a replacement for the temporary fire escape.
We will do what we can using volunteers and our own resources but we always welcome help from people with relevant skills and from donations of materials. If you think that you can help us, please contact us.
There will also be things that we cannot do ourselves and will need to raise funds to pay for.
You can donate via Peoples Fundraising or by cheque payable to Gloucester Boathouse Limited (and sent to Gloucester Boathouse, David Hook Way, Gloucester, GL2 5LL).
It would not have been possible to get so far with the boathouse development without the generosity of individuals and businesses making donations of money, time and materials. To date we have raised over £1.7 million. A full list of donors can be found on the Roll of Honour; our major donors have been:
Gloucestershire Environmental Trust
Gloucester Rowing Club
Cheltenham Ladies College
Gloucester Canoe Club (Hazel Walker legacy)
Gloucester City Council
The Summerfield Trust
Gloucestershire Playing Fields Association
