Time for Life!

This project provides positive and stimulating experiences for children mainly between the ages of 5 and 18 who are affected by a medical condition such as cancer. Initially funded by Children in Need and The Robertson Trust, it provides interest and activities to relish and share, including the thrill of riding on a range of vessels from a fast rigid inflatable to a 40 ton launch. Not only do the children have the opportunity to watch a variety of wildlife such as dolphins and seals, they are also given an appreciation of the many secrets held by the United Kingdom’s largest river (in terms of outflow). Heritage, history, environment and industry are all covered by our expert guides. The children are introduced to various milestones in the river’s history, visiting for example the precise site of the Tay Bridge Disaster, and they view the workings of Dundee’s modern port facilities from the seaward side. These experiences will be further augmented by the Tayseekers Taymara Heritage Education Project (history and natural heritage) and the Tay’gether Improving Lives Project (the contemporary Tay and surroundings). 

Time for Life! commenced riverborne activities in the Spring of 2017 and trips have already been enjoyed by a considerable number of children.
