Just over a year after receiving a cheque for £60,000 the Young Lives charity has finally set sail.
Crewed by volunteers and attracting people across Cambridgshire it helps youngsters get creative while afloat.
Lynn Hogarth from the charity Young Lives says:
"Cambridgeshire is full of waterways and I don't think young people and children get to appreciate the waterways as much as they should yet they're on their doorstep. so we thought we'd bring young people and the waterways together, teach them how to use the boat, let them enjoy the waterways. The places we're stopping are the places where we've got people to come and see us and good places to moor up to let people to come down and join us."
Young Lives won last year but another project from several years back has also come to fruition"
It's full steam ahead at the Northampton and Lamport Railway. After winning fifty grand in 2010 the Allchin Steam roller, that was previously in bits, is now up and running
A piece of our industrial heritage saved for future generations. And bringing fun to the Fens - all thanks to the Big Lottery.
