Leigh Maritime Event

The Leigh Maritime event, organised by Leigh Town Council, lived up to its name in the Old Town on Sunday 27th July. Endeavour took pride of place alongside Bell Wharf and together with our stand, adjacent to the boat, proved a popular attraction.

Visitors were interested in the Endeavour story and some new members were recruited and merchandise sold.

Many people came on board and we even had a group of traditional shanty men who helped to swell the crowds during their performances. Trust members Andrea Cunningham and Brian Denny fresh from their marriage the previous day also found the time to pose for the camera.

We also participated at the Leigh regatta on Sunday 14th  September where we also enjoyed a refreshing number of visitors to our stand and again new members were recruited and further funds were raised.
