This is an opportunity to celebrate all that our wonderful volunteers give to Surrey Wildlife Trust - their time, experience, talents, patience, humour, commitment, energy and passion.

The strength of our charity over the last 52 years has come from our volunteers

Volunteers at Surrey Wildlife Trust have a drive that enables them to make a true difference within the county and by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals.

We have over 1000 volunteers registered, from work parties to cow checkers, education and events assistants to wildlife recorders, visitor centre assistants to sawmill workers. Our volunteers help us record, monitor, dig, teach, welcome and build and you can join them!

It’s a time to show appreciation because we recognise that the strength of our charity over the last 52 years has come from our volunteers – can you imagine what it would be like without them? This year, we invite you to consider this as you celebrate the volunteers powering your community.

During National Volunteering Week is one week we encourage everyone to give volunteering a try. If you have skills to share, a few hours to spare or you’re looking for a new challenge, become a volunteer today and start making a difference!

Volunteering is a great way to socialise with like-minded people too, check out last year's volunteer social below.
