We are delighted to announce that following the success of the 2021 Teign Maritime & Shanty Festival we have been able to donate £3,000 to our nominated charities, each receiving a cheque for £750.
In both 2018 and 2019 we were able to contribute a total of £2,000 and were concerned that in a year where we are all emerging from the effects of Covid that we may struggle to match that. But thanks to the glorious weather, increased visitor numbers and their kind generosity, we are able to increase our donation by 50%.
As reported in local papers and online, the Teign Maritime & Shanty festival was an enormous success, with increased visitor numbers and the Teign Estuary community being alive with very many happy people. We were humbled and honoured to receive a letter of congratulations from the Mayor of Teignmouth, celebrating our achievement on holding such a successful and safe festival.
Many thanks again, to all our supporters and volunteers for making this event possible and to the Island Trust and the Johanna Lucretia crew for your special visit to our harbour over the weekend.
Please join us in congratulating our nominated charities for all the tremendous support that they provide for so many.
