Free boat trips for the disabled courtesy of The Friends of Dolphin Charity Dolphin was conceived as a special project by the Rotary Club of Parkstone in 1979 to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Rotary International. The aim was simple: to provide a specially equipped, sturdy safe boat to give free trips to disabled persons of all ages and disabilities in Poole Harbour, which is one of the largest natural harbours in the world. Dolphin I was launched in 1980 and since then we have taken over 45,000 passengers. We have, over the years, had great help and support from the Royal Marines at their Hamworthy base, the Poole Harbour Commissioners, the Poole Boat Haven Marina and, also the Poole Fisherman’s Association who very kindly allow us a berth in their end of the Marina. Dolphin III works from the Boat Haven Marina with the kind help and cooperation of the Marina staff, where the pontoons allow direct loading of wheelchairs. It must also be stressed that the whole service is run entirely by many willing volunteers who donate their services. The Friends of Dolphin take the safety of both passengers and boat most diligently and are constantly looking at improvements. With this in mind, regular training exercises are carried out by the crew so that we are able to deal with any emergency should it ever arise. We operate trips from 1st May until 30th September each year, on average taking over 2000 disabled passengers with their carers. The majority of trips are around the Harbour and islands, of which there are two in any one day, but where the tides allow, there can be a single trip in the day up to Wareham where our passengers enjoy a fish and chip lunch on board before returning down river to Poole. Although the majority of our passengers are mainly from Dorset and Hampshire, we also have many who holiday in the area from many parts of the UK. This year I am pleased to report that The Friends of Dolphin has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, known as the MBE for Charities. Our Chairman, Ray Kipling, commented “We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised in this way. It is a reflection of many years of hard work by hundreds of volunteers who have brought so much happiness to all our passengers”. For more information please visit: DOLPHIN III DOLPHIN III The Friends of Dolphin wish to thank the Poole Harbour Commissioners and the staff of the Haven Marina for their help and assistance over the years. We have now given free trips to over 45,000 disabled persons of all ages and disabilities since 1980, and rely entirely on fund raising and donations to run the boat. Should any disabled group or individual wish to book a trip or if you wish to give a donation to Dolphin, then please ring: Bob Irwin on 01258 875806
