Crusader Community Boating is a Northamptonshire charity that enables people with physical or mental disabilities, as well as those from care homes, to enjoy a day trip on the local waterways in its purpose built boat - an experience they might otherwise be denied.  Trips run from Gayton Junction, at Blisworth Arm, along the Grand Union Canal. Passengers either bring a picnic or we make a lunch stop at the Wharf canalside pub at Bugbrooke.

There is no charge for these trips as we rely on voluntary donations and our own fundraising activities.

To help fund the free trips, we also run a number of private charter trips for groups of up to 20 passengers. A perfect day out for family and friends celebrating a special occasion.

The charity, run entirely by volunteers who are also responsible for generating their own funding, is continuing a service for the local community that was started by St John Ambulance over 20 years ago.

Due to an increase in demand for the current service, and the charity’s objective of introducing an expanded service for primary school children, we are currently seeking financial support to purchase a second boat.
