North England December Volunteer Update

Hello everyone

With Christmas so very nearly upon us, I wanted to take the opportunity to say an enormous thank you to all of you from the Woodland Trust for everything you have done to support us and our work during 2019.

I am continually inspired and amazed by the commitment and time and energy you offer us to help our cause in so many different ways, and feel truly lucky to be a part of supporting our fantastic volunteers here in the north England region. Thank you and here’s to another great year of volunteering in 2020.

 

Volunteer Training programme 2020

Thanks to everyone who came along and joined us at our training events this year. I am pleased to announce that our volunteer training programme for 2020 is now organised and available to book.

All courses are below, to book simply click on the course. All courses can also be booked through the Woodland Trust website, by clicking on ‘ support us’, ‘events’ and ‘volunteer events’.

Our courses are free and open to all volunteers across the northern region.

I would ask however if you need to cancel your booking, or find once you have booked you are no longer able to make it, please do let me know as soon as possible by emailing me directly at clairegreen@woodlandtrust.org.uk. This allows someone else to be able to take your place. As we pay for trainers and venues for these courses it also ensures our courses can run at full capacity. Thanks!
