DWT Call For More Volunteers
12:03am 5th January 2014
Dorset Wildlife Trust say volunteers are the lifeblood to their work in the county.
They're asking for more of us to lend them a hand.
Dorset Wildlife Trust's Volunteering Manager, Steve Davis said, "Volunteers are vital to the organisation and help us carry out our important conservation work. Volunteering can bring personal satisfaction too whether it's learning a new skill, making new friends and keeping fit or simply being closer to nature, there's something for everyone, no matter where you live in Dorset."
Pat Jefferies has been volunteering at Lorton Meadows conservation centre since May 2013. He said, "I was offered the chance to do butterfly transects at Lorton Meadows, and after a few weeks I started helping to look after the office or shop during events. Now I also help out with social media for the Trust. It has given me a massive sense of satisfaction, achievement and the motivation to learn more. I can be as involved as much or as little as I want to be."
