In memoriam (Mr Fleming, Mr Lease, and Mrs Lemon)

We have received most generous support from our schools, from Rotary, Probus, and WI groups, from churches, voluntary groups and individuals, and from pub and shop collection boxes. Stoke-on-Trent Boat Club has supported us in many ways over 40 years. And we work closely with the Canal and River Trust.

The current boat was originally funded by the executors of the late W Allman CBE, the National Lottery, Radio Stoke Rascal Appeal, BBC Children in Need, Signal Radio, Fenton Green Golf Society, Tullis-Russell-Brittain Papers Ltd and the Freemasons of Stoke on Trent.

This first Beatrice was built through the generosity of Cammel Laird Training Ltd, the Variety Club of Great Britain, Stoke Inland Waterways Association, Stoke and Leek Round Tables, JC Bamford Ltd, North Staffs Lions, NUPE, the Ceramic and Allied Trades Union, Ansells Ltd, the Trentones Concert Party, the Endonian Society, Leek Licensed Victuallers, and many groups and individuals.
