Support Us

As a volunteer led organisation without a guaranteed income stream, Shieldhall is hugely dependant on the support it receives from Members and Friends.

Each year the Society organises a schedule of cruises that can be enjoyed by all the family and which are our baseline source of income. In days gone by, earnings from the cruise programme would fund our annual programme of maintenance and improvement. Increased fuel costs and compliance with maritime legislation mean we must now constantly fund-raise to keep Shieldhall sailing. There are so many ways you can help us to keep our Steamship Alive and Steaming! Scroll down for more information…
