Wallingford Accessible Boat Club Announce Wheelyboat Service 5 Days Per Week

More choice for passengers, increased capacity for additional voyages!

Wallingford Accessible Boat Club (WABC), the local charity which enables disabled and less mobile people to get out and about on the River Thames, today announced that they are now offering a five day a week, Tuesday to Saturday service.  This important announcement gives passengers greater freedom of choice when considering the timing of their voyage as well as increasing the total number of voyages on offer. 

WABC Chairman, John Jenkins MBE, explained: “We are so very pleased to be able to offer additional capacity to our clients so they can take full advantage of our free-of-charge river voyages.  We had an excellent response to our recruitment campaign over last winter and having got our new recruits fully trained we have been able to add them into our pool of volunteer crews.  So, big thanks to them!”


Jenkins continued: “With the increased capacity, we can offer 9 voyages per week and hope to now be able to make up the time lost due to adverse river and weather conditions in April & May.  We set a target at the start of the year of 300 passengers voyaging with us during the season to September so now we should be back on track.  So, I appeal to all disabled and less mobile people in South Oxfordshire to take full advantage of our service – come and have some fun on the river!  Voyages are free of charge but in order to operate we are happy to accept donations.  Simply book a voyage on our website
