Contact details

Nichola Jackson or phone 01228 829570

You would be

  • helping to  set up / close down the event
  • assisting with running the activities (crafts, pond dipping, mini-beasts hunts, sweep netting, taking photographs etc).
  • talking to members of the public about Cumbria Wildlife TrustT
  • if people are interested in volunteering themselves, talk to them about what you do.

You will be good at talking to people of all ages and happy to work outside in probably cold and windy temperatures! Though hopefully there will be a marquee.  You will also need to be comfortable with walking on uneven and wet ground.

The Discovery Day is on Thursday 24th October and we are looking for help between 12 mid day to 5pm

If you can help with any of these things - either activities or just generally please contact Nichola Jackson
