A CANAL boat charity is set to get the Royal seal of approval.
The Princess Royal will visit The Safe Anchor Trust at its Shepley Bridge Marina home in Mirfield next month.
The organisation, established in 1995, was named as a recipient of the Queen's Golden Jubilee Award for its charity work last year.
The Princess Royal will be on a two-day visit to the county and will visit the Safe Anchor Trust on Monday, March 15.
The charity is staging a special reception to welcome the Princess and will offer her a tour of their working narrow boats.
Chairman Mrs Jane Gummer said: "We are extremely thrilled and honoured to host a visit by the Princess Royal.
"It is a tremendous way to say thankyou for all the hard work our volunteers have put in to build up the work of the Trust."
Safe Anchor works with British Waterways and West Yorkshire Police, taking disadvantaged or disabled children and adults on waterways trips.
Last year they took more than 5,600 people out on canal trips and worked with more than 100 local groups who care for the elderly, people with mental health, education or mobility problems.
The trust is run by volunteers and relies on public donations.
