Wilderness Foundation UK volunteers make a difference working with nature and transforming lives.
Wilderness Foundation UK volunteers make a difference.
- Some help troubled young people turn their lives around.
- Some work outdoors to help preserve wild spaces.
- Some accomplish both goals by working on fundraising and public awareness campaigns.
- All gain the satisfaction of contributing to the wellbeing of our communities and our planet.
Most volunteer opportunities are in and around Essex and the London area. Work on fundraising and public awareness can take place anywhere.
My name is Christine Smith and I have volunteered in the office at the Wilderness Foundation since April 2014.
Having retired I looked for a way that I could give something back to the community. I enjoy the people and the varied work together with their appreciation of what I do which explains the length of time I have volunteered for the organization. I believe that in a small way I am saving individuals time so that the team can continue their valuable work.
Christine provides enormous admin support to the Foundation. Her dedication as well as her experience built a strong base for the charity to grow throughout the years. We can’t thank Christine enough for being such a supportive member of the Wilderness Foundation family.
