Inspiring walkers to volunteer

Ramblers volunteers

As part of the launch of the new Ramblers website we wanted to give recognition to our dedicated and hard-working volunteers and champion the work that you do for the Ramblers.

Hopefully you will have seen the volunteer profiles in the Support us and About us sections, as well as individual quotes from volunteers being used around the site, which aim to do just that!

We’d like to feature more Ramblers volunteers online and portray the whole spectrum of our volunteering activities, be it footpath maintenance, local campaigns, leading walks or helping to run Britain’s walking charity.

We’d also like to show a variety of roles from committee positions to project work and more informal volunteering so that potential volunteers can see the many ways they can get involved.

If you're keen to help inspire others to volunteer email our Website Editor, Emma Pearson, at with:

  • A photo – portrait headshot at least 100 pixels wide by 110 pixels high
  • Short quote about your volunteering – 50 words max, this should sum up what you enjoy about volunteering for the Ramblers
  • A testimonial about the work you do – 250-350 words giving more detail about your area of volunteering, how you got involved and what benefits you take from it
  • Role title
  • Area and/or Group you volunteer for if appropriate

Thank you for helping us encourage more people to help deliver our charitable work!
