These figures exclude passengers on short trips at event days.

SCHOOL trips are for children with additional education needs and their teachers. Schools are not charged but most make a donation to the charity.

ADULT trips are for residential homes, retirement villages, or organisations for the elderly or disabled. These runs are paid for. Passenger numbers included support staff. About 30% of passengers on these runs are support staff.

PRIVATE trips are those arranged as a way of fund-raising, mainly for family, work, social etc groups.

Since 2008, each year on average, Beatrice has

  • carried 625 children from schools on 82 runs
  • run 25 trips for groups that may welcome our facilities for people with disabilities
  • hosted 16 social or family groups on fund-raising trips
  • taken 1,286 passengers (including support staff) on 124 trips.
