Volunteer hours

Having reached the financial year end may I remind all volunteers to submit their hours up to the end of March 2022. The Trust records volunteer hours in order to demonstrate to a wider audience just how much effort volunteers are making towards the restoration of the Canal. All hours submitted are taken into consideration for ‘matched funding’ purposes and effectively provide a resource that the WBCT may hopefully convert to hard cash at a later date.
