Get Afloat!

The GET AFLOAT! Fund is a new fund to help disadvantaged children and adults to GET AFLOAT in Chichester
Harbour. Local businesses have been asked to sponsor trips and we aim to raise enough money to provide up to 10 free trips per year on the Solar Heritage for groups that qualify.

The free trips will be available to schools and groups that otherwise wouldn't be able to afford to go afloat. These will include schools in deprived areas or those with a high level of special needs pupils. Adults with special needs will also be able to apply for a free trip.
