We're marking Volunteers Week with a Huge Thank You to our wonderful army of dedicated folk who generously give their invaluable time for helping wildlife

This National Volunteers Week, 1-7 June, we're paying homage to our volunteers: the life blood of our Trust across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire. There are more than 1,600 wonderful committed people from conservation volunteers to office volunteers, wildlife monitors and trustees to our Local Groups and Young People’s Forum - plus all those who run and help with family and children’s sessions - and we couldn't achieve what we do without all this local community action!

We're saying special thanks to all these amazing people especially for sticking with us through the tough times of pandemic, and helping us to catch up subsequently with all the work that we had been unable to do.

As CEO Brian Eversham says: “The Wildlife Trust was founded by volunteers – I started at the Trust as a volunteer. Volunteers are the people who make the Trust what it is – and a key part of the future. Whichever reserve I visit the evidence of volunteer work is all around - from boardwalks, fencing, new kissing gates - you name it, volunteers have left their mark for good on so many of our reserves. And it's been incredibly inspiring to see so many people helping to keep things going over the last couple of years.”
