Film night: Let’s hear it for the volunteers!

Volunteers Week runs from 1 – 7 June this year, and to celebrate the vital work of volunteers who are the lifeblood of many local river groups across the UK, the Rivers Trust has just released this short film of what it’s like to volunteer with the Don Catchment Rivers Trust.

In 2018 alone, the Rivers Trust tells us, DCRT volunteers have already filled over 1000 bags of litter from the catchment’s very urbanised riversides and waterways. They’ve also been working on practical conservation tasks in the Moss Valley to restore its biodiversity and heritage value.​

So, if you’ve been inspired by watching this video, why not check out some different volunteering opportunities in and around your local waterways this year?

(Hint: The Wild Trout Trust’s Trout in the Town programme is super keen to help more local people look after their urban rivers, and Rivers Trusts almost always need more volunteers too!)
