The charity that transformed London's waterways

Mark BlackwellA highly illuminating article on The Guardian’s Voluntary Sector Partnership Zone (sponsored by MyDonate) tells the story of how waterways around London’s Olympic Park were given a major renovation in time for the 2012 Olympic Games.

It’s the story of a major transformational project successfully carried out by a charity – The Canal & River Trust.

In the article, Mark Blackwell, enterprise manager for the Canal & River Trust, discusses how David Beckham’s opening ceremony speedboat dash was made possible, the vital role played by community volunteers, and the legacy of the totally revamped waterways and what it means for London’s east end communities.
