Canal Boat Trips for Adult Carers Donate Fundraise Why a Canal Boat Trip? Our popular and highly enjoyable Canal Boat Trips are an opportunity for adult carers to take a short active break from their ordinary caring routines and do something different. For a couple of hours, adult carers can relax and socialise with other local carers in a similar situation to themselves giving them the chance to share experiences or just converse and laugh with others. Enjoying the relaxing scenery and ambience of the northern waterways and countryside, a canal boat trip with Signpost might be the only time in a week when a carer can just be themselves for a while and not have to dwell on their caring responsibilities. £165 will enable us to fund two Canal Boat Trips every month throughout the summer.
