Hi, it's well-known that volunteering is really good for you both for physical and mental health.
The Wooden Canal Boat Society always welcomes volunteers, on the boats, in the shop and especially to do basic admin work or selling online for us.
No long hours expected or great expertise needed, just a commitment to seeing a job through.
See our website for more info or email us at
You won't regret it !!

Absolutely agree with you !! the only reason I can throw around a 10m catamaran with a pair of 500hp motors on the transom is through volunteering, thanks to marine rescue Australia I hold a recreational shipmasters licence and can confidently handle all sorts of watercraft in all sorts of sea states day or night, total cost to Kiwi absolutely zilch  :) I'd be stuffed if I had to negotiate some lock gates but who knows, every day is a school day  ;)
My pet hate is passing. When my time comes, Iím going to die, Iím refuse to ďpassĒ. I want people to say Iím dead. Brown ******* bread. Any ****** that says I passed, Iíll haunt.
