Role Description

GreenFingers Volunteer

GreenFingers volunteers enjoy meeting new people whilst working outdoors, carrying out various park maintenance tasks like community gardening. Our focus is on nature conservation; much of what we do has a positive impact on the park’s wildlife and the local community’s wellbeing. No prior knowledge is required. We meet weekly at either Winton Recreation Ground, Alexandra Park and Watermans Park.

We’re also looking for people who may like to lead sessions, so whether you’d like to run sports days, meditation sessions or a crafts activity we’d love to hear from you.

We’re recruiting volunteers to help us run our Visitor Centre on the Stour Valley Nature Reserve. This may be helping to maintain our beautiful garden, welcoming visitors to the centre, helping with our small cafe or supporting our rangers with some of the fabulous events they put on for children and adults.

You’ll be meeting new people and talking about our fantastic nature reserve while learning new skills and supporting an amazing cause.

Role Description

Events & Fundraising Supporter

We’re looking for enthusiastic, out-going people who’ll support us during our fundraising activities in Bournemouth’s parks. Throughout the summer we’ll be attending a number of fetes and family events and need extra help to man our stand.

You’ll be chatting to the public about our charity – no experience necessary as full training will be given. You don’t have to support the whole day, just a couple of hours will really help the team!
