About The Doncaster Movement


Created by Doncaster Council

Contact us Paul.Bareham@doncaster.gov.uk

We are looking to make a change, and to make a stand - we want to kick against the climate of doom, gloom, and disaster. We know Doncaster is getting better all the time, but we can go faster, bigger, harder, and we need your brains, hearts, hands, energy and enthusiasm to keep it happening - to help Doncaster grow - and flourish. From allotments and street murals to festivals and community cafes, if you have an idea to improve where you live, create a crowdfunding project page and be part of the Doncaster Movement. Through the Doncaster Movement you'll have the opportunity to ask friends, family and neighbours to back your project with a pledge. We also have a fund of £30,000 - with a maximum pledge of £5,000 to put towards the projects which can show the backing of the community through their campaign. See the below tab for more information on the fund. Doncaster is different, we all know that. We are different, so we do differently. Join the movement!

Adams Ark Community Canal Boat - SOS
Adams Ark Community Canal Boat - SOS joined The Doncaster Movement2 months ago

The community canal boat has recently been transferred to the Friends of Adams Ark Group, a voluntary organisation made up mainly of volunteer skippers and youth workers. After nearly 35 years, Adams Ark is showing its age and needs extensive structural work in the cabin and galley, new paintwork to the outer framework and replacement bunks. In order to reduce energy costs, it is also planned to install solar panels. The vessel is located on the Leeds / Liverpool Canal and operates from its berth at Skipton during late spring, summer and autumn months. Whilst originally intended for use by young people, the Friends Group also wish to develop day sailings for older and vulnerable people. Crew members have the chance to obtain the Complete Crew Award issued by the National Canal Boat Association and Adams Ark is also used for young adults engaged in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. They are required to open traditional locks and bridges, prepare food and maintain a clean environment.
