The Countrycare Volunteer Group
Volunteers are the lifeblood of Countrycare. Since 1986, over 139,000 volunteer hours have been given to the service. This amounts to an enormous £863,000 worth of time.
It goes without saying that without this fantastic support, only a fraction of the work would have been possible. However, we always need more help so if you have any spare time why not give it a go - get fit and do your bit for the environment.
Volunteers are involved in the whole spectrum of tasks undertaken by the Service ranging from habitat management work such as pond restoration, to building paths and countryside furniture and bridges. Not only are there benefits to the wider community and wildlife, but the volunteers benefit greatly too in improved heath and sense of well being. There is increasing evidence coming forward that clearly demonstrates contact with wildlife and physical exercise outdoors enhances people’s health both mentally and physically. Help is always needed, so if you fancy getting involved in practical conservation work why not give it a try? There are always tasks to suit all ages and abilities.
