FOR many of us, the new year will see us set ourselves a series of resolutions that we don’t always keep up. This year set yourself one that you will enjoy continuing with, if you find the right setting, right people and right times for yourself.
Let IWA help you find these and help you to succeed in your 2023 resolutions. Just go to our volunteering pages on the website https://waterways.org.uk/support/ways-to-get-involved/volunteer and we will help find you something near to where you live, doing something that interests you, maybe something you’ve never tried or thought you’d never get the chance to do.
You don’t have to have skills in that area, we will help you learn along the way and develop the skills you need in a friendly setting with like-minded people who love restoring and looking after our wonderful canals and waterways for the future. It’s not all about getting dirty in the outdoors either, plenty of other opportunities are available.
Volunteer manager Jenny Hodson said: “Volunteering offers a whole assortment of opportunities which can help meet your personal goals as well as helping others and our natural and built environments. If you want to be more active try our restoration, maintenance or environmental roles.
“If you are thinking of pursuing a job in a leadership or administration role, what better way to see what it’s like than by volunteering in that area? If you have a few spare hours and want to share your present skills or knowledge or learn new ones then just ask.”
Volunteering with IWA brings the opportunity to meet new people, have new experiences and improve your physical and mental health.
