The boat is available to hire from Windermere Quays Electric Boat Hire and will help raise money through their match-funding initiative.

The boat, which holds up to ten people, will cost an extra £5 per hour. Windermere Quays have pledged to match the extra £5 so that for each hour the boat is hired £10 will go to Cancer Research UK.

Tim said: "This is a fantastic initiative from Windermere Quays.

"Everyone has someone close to them who has been affected by cancer, and so it's great that this new boat will raise money for a charity which does amazing work in fighting cancer.

"And I want to pay tribute to our local cancer research teams, especially the team in Kendal who hot-footed it from their coffee morning to be at the launch in Bowness on Saturday."
