Volunteers part of our team at the Royal Highland Show
The Royal Highland Show was blessed with four days of wall to wall sunshine and so was incredibly well attended. Our Woodland Trust stand was jam-packed with visitors and so having volunteers there to help out was incredibly helpful!…we couldn’t have survived without them!
I was there on Sunday and two volunteers, Hannah, a new Observatree Volunteer, and Ian, who has been volunteering with us for years and carries out four volunteering roles with us, joined us on the stand. Both of them were incredibly at home, and just as competent engaging with children and families as they were with landowners who wanted to talk woodland creation! It was a long day; we were all on duty from 8.30am to 6.00pm, and both of them worked incredibly hard all day!
Thanks so much to Hannah and Ian!
