The ferry company were looking to fulfill additional footfall and needed to invest in a larger boat that could be more flexible to their passengers needs. They had researched Lottery funding but they believed that they didn’t fit into their eligibility criteria.
Roger Levick said "Applying for Leader 5 funding was a very positive experience and we were delighted when we were notified that we were successful. As a result of the funding we purchased our new ferry and we have achieved record numbers of passengers being carried due to the 70% greater cargo area. Passenger feedback has been very positive and we also have a happier crew and volunteers, a real sense of pride in the new boat, and a much more positive experience for all concerned with AIFL".
