Ann started volunteering some 16 years ago, back when CanalAbility was still called The Canal Boat Project, and was a very different organisation.
Since she started it has grown out of all recognition, both in the number of volunteers the charity has, and the number of people it is able to help.
Ann worked her way up from a crew member and her claim to fame is that she was the first woman skipper with the charity. Although she no longer skippers, she does still go out on trips as a first mate or crew member.
She also now helps with turnarounds on a Friday – making sure that all our boats are “spick and span” for the following week.
