We have received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund to develop a Young People’s Hub at the base in Beeches Road, Loughborough. Young volunteers will be able to take part in a range of water-based educational, environmental and heritage projects, gaining new experiences, learning new skills and having fun. While enjoyable, the young people will gain greater confidence, self-belief, and important collaboration skills.
We will be rolling out educational, heritage, environmental and creative projects for local young people on the local waterways and at our base in Loughborough.
Watch out for exciting updates over the coming months, along with ways you can become involved.
This August we are offering a 5-day crew training opportunity for those aged 16-19 to learn all about canal boats, canals and customer service at our charity.
As a Trust, it is important that we encourage our future volunteers to understand all that we do, including looking after our canals and the environment. As part of our new Youth Project Programme, our charity conducted a litter pick, setting off from our base on Saturday May 15th starting at 10.00am.
