TCCC Charity of the Year is WAT- the Wendover Arm Trust.

Having profiled the canal banks on the Wendover Arm, Bentomat lining is laid and then covered with earth to both protect it and provide weight. The Bentomat is a "sandwich" of synthetic material enclosing absorbent bentonite granules. If the lining is punctured the granules absorb water and swell to re-seal the puncture. Proceeds from our Charity bookshelf and TCCC charity fundraising events will go to WAT during 2014/15

The Wide at Thrupp

Narrowboats at Thrupp Wide


The Thrupp Canal Cruising Club was formed from the ideas of a small number of local boat owners in the early 1980s. It now has over 100 members and manages the moorings in the area on behalf of The Canal & River Trust.


Thrupp is a hamlet on the southern Oxford Canal with origins going right back to the early days of the canal when it was finally extended south from Banbury to its terminus at Oxford.

TCCC Charity

Amount Raised £1100:
Every year TCCC vote for a new charity to support. The 2015/16 charity is Flexicare


Club Bookcase


As well as managing the boat moorings at Thrupp, the club also controls the fishing rights for the waters under its jurisdiction and issues fishing permits to anglers who wish to fish at Thrupp

TCCC Bookcase

The club's charity bookcase started by accident about 9 years ago when we had a jumble sale to raise some money for the TCCC charity of the day and a pile of books were left near the water point.
