Volunteers Week 2022

Takes place between the 1st and 7th of June every year. It’s a chance to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make to our communities.

The Basingstoke Canal Society has over 200 volunteers working to support the Basingstoke Canal Authority every day rain or shine.

Helping to look after the canal so that others may enjoy it.

The Society received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2018 in recognition of its voluntary efforts over more than 50 years

Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.

If you are on the canal this Jubilee weekend then spare a moment to remember the work of the volunteers.

If you have a bit more than a thought and you are interested in becoming a volunteer you can find out more by visiting the volunteer section on our web site.
