Celebrating and recognising volunteers

Volunteer Awards 2016 

Without the 26,000 volunteers who give their time to the Ramblers we just wouldn't exist.

Whether looking after paths and green spaces, leading walks or opening up new places to explore, we just couldn't do what we do without our dedicated volunteers. They are a shining example of how we can all make a big difference every day.

To find out how you can nominate a volunteer visit our certificate and commendation nominations page.
