How and why becomea supporter?

The Danny can be found on the North West Waterways and has been a project involving the community for more than 20 years.

The Danny is YOUR own 'Little Steamer'. She is free to visit, thanks to the generous support we receive from donations. Your support cares for her and allows her to give a unique maritime experience to our many visitors.

Your support means we can offer free learning and education sessions for local school children. Your support means we can keep The Danny cruising on our local waterways as a piece of living heritage. 

We need your support to make sure that everyone has access to this important community and heritage steamship.
