Corporate Donation to the “Replace Kitty Trip Boat” Fundraising Campaign


***This donation is for businesses. For individual donations, please click here***

The Society are raising funds to replace our trip boat “Kitty”. A canal boat can only go on for so long before repairs become almost impossible to sustain.  Kitty is nearing the end of her life and we plan to replace her with an all-electric boat.  Kitty is named after the last horse to tow boats along the canal, so it’s fitting that with your help she will be replaced by a boat with an equally environmentally sound power unit!

An Electric Revolution

As well as making the new Kitty non-polluting and all-electric, we also plan to install several charging points on the canal in Woking which will represent the first step towards making the canal fully electric for all users.

Better adapted for the Less Abled

The new Kitty will be much better adapted for the less abled, being designed from scratch to allow easier wheelchair access and provide enough space for an on-board toilet.

Kitty is a Community Resource 

Kitty is very much a community resource which in addition to introducing thousands of visitors each year to the beauty of one of the finest canal environments in the UK also provides trips for local schoolchildren, care homes, hospitals, heritage open days and people with disabilities. Kitty has also had a long association with the Children of Chernobyl taking children on trips each year.

So what do you get for your donation?

Hopefully helping save Kitty will make you feel good.  But you’ll also get:

  • Publicity through the local press
  • Publicity through our e-mails, Facebook posts and members magazine – to over 5,000 local people
  • Featured on the Kitty Donors page on the Basingstoke Canal Society website, with a link to your website
  • A free trip on Kitty for two
  • VIP invite to the launch ceremony for Kitty.
