Helping keep our heritage alive...

Our volunteering holidays act as a catalyst to a canal restoration project making significant progress on a site in just one week. Working together WRG volunteers can achieve great things such as building a canal basin and new section of canal, restoring a flight of locks, removing tonnes of rubbish from a canal or even rebuilding a bridge. This summer our volunteers contributed over £400,000 in volunteer hours towards restoring the canal network of England and Wales!

WRG attracts a wide range of volunteers and its friendship with REMPART and other European volunteers continues to grow. International volunteers from Spain, Italy, Germany and France  attended a Canal Camp in 2017. In addition, WRG helped 64 students Duke of Edinburgh Award students complete their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award residential.
