Islington's Angel Canal Festival Needs You
The Angel Canal Festival is run by volunteers, in order that we may continue and run the event we need volunteer helpers- on the day and throughout the year.
We fully appreciate some people are not in a position to donate funds, however we also require helpers to keep things running smoothly. Help is required throughout the year with planning, preparation and marketing. On the day we receive a great deal of support from the local boat cruising club based at St Pancras, as well as attractions within the festival planned and organized by local charities such as Islington Boat Club. However we always need more helpers on the day, the usual timetable of jobs is as follows.
ALL VOLUNTEERS get a T-shirt to wear on the day, an ID badge, a snack and a BIG thank you. A 2hr shift is recommended then you can spend the rest of the day enjoying the Festival but if you would like to do more hours, it can be arranged! We hold a Volunteers & Boaters BBQ in Graham St Gardens the night before the Festival. We all bring our own food and cook it together. Non St Pancras Cruising Club Volunteers are invited to take part in Club Cruises throughout the year with the Spooky Cruise on Sat 28th Oct being a favourite.

Volunteers receive a very special Festival T Shirt and refreshments are provided.
One of our Volunteers, Beryl Windsor, BEM, was presented with one of the Mayor of Islington's Civic Awards on Tue 11 Mar 2014.
This is the second time one of our Volunteers has been recognised in this way as the late Jim Lagden received the award in 2006. As this award is given 'to thank those people who care about their community and make a positive and valuable contribution to the lives of others'
We are very proud. Beryl said she accepted the award on behalf of all the Volunteers without whom the event could not happen and thanks them for all their hard work.
The ACF team would like to thank all the volunteers from all supporting organisations, as well as the essential band of angels, that made last year's event again so successful-without them there would be no event.
