Over £1,000 has been raised by sponsoring volunteers to pull narrow boat Dawn Rose along a two mile section of the Chesterfield Canal. This sponsorship will help the restoration of the Derby Canal section at Draycott. Pictures below show our volunteers pulling Dawn Rose before arriving at its destination. Please add to the funding total by clicking on the Virgin Money Giving icon on the home page or by pledging your support for the Draycott Project.

Thank you to all those volunteers pulling Dawn Rose including: Roger Ashmead, Nigel Barker, Jacquie Birtles, Val Clare, John Dyson, Gary Harding, Anne Madge, Chris Madge and David Savidge and those also supporting Sara Ashmead and Paul Birtles (our photographer for the day). Together with volunteers from the Dawn Rose Charity.
