Towpath Taskforce - Blackburn (every other Thursday)
Activities: Practical, Environment, Outdoors, One off or a taster, Regularly, Plastic and Litter Clearance
Blackburn, Leeds & Liverpool Canal, Lancashire
Join us for a practical volunteering session, between 10am and 2.30pm every first and third Thursday of the month in and around Blackburn. Activities undertaken include: vegetation works, litter picks and general towpath maintenance. No experience is needed though it’s appreciated if you can let us know that you’re turning up to help ensure we have enough tools and to find out where the next volunteer day is taking place!
Please wear suitable outdoor clothing which you don’t mind getting dirty and sturdy footwear. We’ll provide all the tools and equipment needed to do the task, but you may also want to bring your own flask or water bottle, along with a packed lunch or snacks, depending on how long you will be staying.
What's in it for you?
It's a great way to meet other like-minded volunteers and get to hear about other volunteering opportunities if you fancy getting more involved.
What skills are we looking for?
No special skills are needed for the day and everyone works at their own pace. If you've got specific skills that you think may be helpful, please let us know.
