The Boleh Project

NLHF Transition Funding for ‘Boleh Project’

Client: Boleh Trust

  • Trust formed in 2008 with express purpose of saving Boleh, a historic junk yacht of unique design, and giving her a new lease of life
  • A skilled and effective set of voluntary Trustees with a clear philosophy for involving young people

 

Project: Boleh Sail Training Transition Study

  • With a year to go before the completion of the NLHF funded restoration of Boleh, the Trust wished to assess the options and develop a business plan for establishing a partnership based sail training operation for young people in Portsmouth
  • Strategic options review, business planning, marketing and fundraising study using external expertise
  • Review of financial, legal and management implications of partnering with local organisations to deliver a Boleh sail training operation
  • Review of potential partners and commercial opportunities

 

How we helped

  • We researched and produced the pre-application and successful Transition Funding application to NLHF, securing £71800 for the £73800 project
  • We worked closely with the Trustees to plan and detail the project, ensuring it was a good fit with NLHF priorities and their needs
