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

The Raid is oneof the main sources of income for the Living Boat Trust, but inreturn the Raid uses many of the LBT’s facilities. If these weren’tavailable from within the organisation the cost of the Raid wouldhave to rise considerably. The Living Boat Trust is only able to runthe Raid if it is financially viable throughout the year.

The people whoorganise the Raid do so as volunteers and give their time willinglybecause they believe in the LBT. They love being part of the Raid somuch that they not only organise it but happily pay the full fee toparticipate in tn17.
