I understand the Living Boat Trust makes a profit from the Raid – is this necessary and reasonable?

The Raid is one of the main sources of income for the Living Boat Trust, but in return the Raid uses many of the LBT’s facilities. If these weren’t available from within the organisation the cost of the Raid would have to rise considerably. The Living Boat Trust is only able to run the Raid if it is financially viable throughout the year.

The people who organise the Raid do so as volunteers and give their time willingly because they believe in the LBT. They love being part of the Raid so much that they not only organise it but happily pay the full fee to participate in tn17.
