Norfolk Broads Direct is delighted to have donated £1,524 to the Love the Broads Campaign this year with the help of our boating customers. For every boating holiday that is booked with us we donate £1 to the charitable trust, which supports the Broads landscape and environment for the benefit of visitors and local communities.
Our funds have been ring-fenced to provide new moorings at South Walsham Broad – giving better access to the village shop, pub and the award winning Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden. Surrounding dykes will also be restored, providing an improved habitat for everything from bank voles to rare dragonflies.
Norfolk Broads Direct director Barbara Greasley said: “We are delighted to have made this worthwhile donation that brings us a step closer to providing the new moorings at South Walsham Broad. This will really enhance the visitor experience in South Walsham as well as supporting the local economy.
“Our donation represents all boating holidays that were booked from 1 April 2016 to 31 October 2016. Thanks to everyone who enjoyed a boating holiday with us and in doing so gave something back to the Broads!”
