Super Campaigner News – April
Welcome to the very first edition of our Super Campaigner News on Whittle!
Here at the Woodland Trust, we’re pretty excited about Whittle and I hope it proves to be a great resource and community for you. Going forward I’ll be using Whittle to share updates on our campaigns as well as tips and guidance on how to get the most out of being a Super Campaigner. I’d also love to hear from you on what articles you would like to see here on Whittle.
If you are a Super Campaigner volunteer, please fill in the hours & activity survey for last month by Wednesday 11th April. Please do take the time to answer this (or email me your hours) as it’s really important the Trust has a record, even if you haven’t managed to do anything in March. I look forward to seeing what you have been up to!
Take part in the survey here.
Thanks for all you do,
Super Campaigner Volunteer Network Manager
