National Volunteers' Week - Here’s to all 26,000 of you


It's volunteers' week and we're celebrating the incredible achievements of those who volunteer with the Ramblers. From leading 47,000 walks a year, to clearing paths, or running one of our 500 groups and 50 areas: it's safe to say without them we couldn't be Britain’s walking charity.

As part of Volunteers’ Week we are announcing the winners of our National volunteer awards and you can find out more about them at our special volunteer week page.

Over 90 nominations were received, with nine nominees shortlisted. Hundreds of you across the country voted, and we were overwhelmed with kind words and encouragement for our volunteers - it's safe to say the work they do is truly inspiring.

Volunteering coordinator at the Ramblers, Ed Wilson said: “Our volunteers are vital to our success. Their daily efforts underpin our work in promoting healthy lifestyles through increased physical activity. The annual NCVO Volunteers’ Week is a timely celebration of the hard work and dedication of millions of volunteers, and this year we’re proud to be able to convey our thanks through the Ramblers Volunteer Awards as well.'
