Event Support Volunteers attend and support our fundraising events and engage with the general public about nature and the work we do. In this varied role you may be asked to run a stand, such as hook a duck or tombola, run an activity like making bird feeders or children’s crafts, storytelling to family den building, toast marshmallows on a fire to signing up new members to Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.

Pin Badge  and Collection Tin Volunteers place and monitor our collection tins and pin badge boxes, which included a range of different British animals and the Help for Hedgehogs campaign by placing a couple of collection tins or pin badge boxes within your local area.

Membership Volunteers are often in our membership office helping enter data and handle membership enquiries. You may be putting together Adopt a Species packs or sending out membership cards or calling our newest members to welcome them to the Trust!

Talk Volunteers deliver talks to local groups and clubs, in order to raise vital funds. We have a range of scripted talks, ranging from the history, the reserves and the work of Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, to talks on bats or hedgehogs, which you could choose to deliver. Or you could create your own talk based on something that you are knowledgeable and passionate about, in line with the Trusts aims and objectives.
