At 6.15pm on Saturday 24th July Kingswear Castle set off from the pontoon at Dartmouth for an evening cruise to help raise funds for the proposed rebuild of the ship over the next three winters.
Around 100, mostly from the locality, bought tickets for the cruise on this lovely evening.
The trip was organised by Chris Phillips on behalf of the Wessex and Dart Branch of the PSPS and the Paddle Steamer Kingswear Castle Trust at a fare of £12 per head and all of us at KC are very grateful to him for all the hard work he put in to make the evening such a success. So thank you Chris.
All in all this event produced a surplus in excess of £1,000 towards the rebuild which is a very good result to help boost the funds.
