Service description:
The Bruce Wake Trust is a registered charity that hires out their own specifically designed (and fully accessible) river and narrow boats to people with disabilities, their friends, and their families.

The late Bruce Wake, who was himself wheelchair-bound as a result of Motor Neurone Disease, generously instigated and endowed the Trust to encourage the provision of leisure activities for people with disabilities.

The boats are moored at Upton Marina, providing the perfect location for cruising the river Severn around Worcester, the river Avon, and various other canals.
