The first week of June is National Volunteers week. When we recognise all those people who give their knowledge, time and enthusiasm and improve the lives of their friends and neighbours. It’s an important moment in the year to recognise how those who volunteer with the Ramblers ensure we can make sure everyone has the chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors on foot and make sure the Ramblers can continue to achieve our aims.
Over the week we are celebrating the huge difference volunteers make including blocked paths, fighting unpleasant path-changes, campaigning for better access, taking minutes at meetings, leading walks or writing to their local or national decision makers. Ramblers volunteers are actively leading our work and making sure everyone can enjoy the outdoors on foot and benefit from the experience.
If you already volunteer with the Ramblers, there lots of ways you can get involved in our Volunteers week programme. We’ve set up a number of events that will give you a chance to meet other volunteers, share ideas and develop your knowledge as well. Below you can see the links to the events that we’re running:
This Volunteers' Week we want to say a very special thank you to all of you who go out of your way to help our cause. It is because of you that the Ramblers is able to promote walking everywhere, by leading walks and ensuring that paths and access land are in good condition for all to enjoy—as well as doing all those vital jobs which make our organisation tick.
Let us know about your volunteering successes, from innovative walks programmes to local campaigns.
If you have a passion for walking we want to hear from you!
