Opportunity picture
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust offers an excellent opportunity to attend some popular county shows for FREE as a volunteer.

As a volunteer, you will help Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust staff before, during and after shows, contributing to changing the way people view wildlife and conservation.

The relevant shows are:
6th - 11th June Cheltenham Science Festival
1st - 2nd July Cotswold Show, Cirencester
9th July Stroud Festival of Nature
15th July Stroud Country Show
2nd Sept Moreton on the Marsh Show

Volunteer duties will include:
Preparing for the event - designing, testing and preparing the fun activities show-goers will enjoy; writing kit lists and packing the truck.
Setting up on the day - unloading the truck, erecting the gazebo, banners and flags; arranging the stall and preparing the activities.
Staffing the stall - talking to the public; helping families with simple activities and signposting people the right way.
Packing away - putting the kit away carefully, loading the truck and making sure nothing is left behind.
What are they looking for?

Volunteers should be confident working within a busy environment, communicating with people of all ages and happy to work with children who will be taking part in the activity.

Access to a car will be required for the majority of the shows due to the remoteness of the venues. However, the Cheltenham Science festival and the two Stroud County shows can be accessed by public transport from Gloucester, Cheltenham and Stroud.


Volunteer expenses will be covered.

On-the-job training will be provided if necessary.

When: From 05/09/2017 to 10/09/2017, Variable times

About Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust logo
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust was founded in 1961 by a group of volunteers, led by Sir Peter Scott, who recognised that local wildlife was under threat. Since that first meeting, 50 years ago, the Trust has grown and now has over 500 active volunteers.

As they continue to protect wildlife and expand their areas of wildlife protection they are always in need for more volunteers to not just help on their nature reserve but engage with local communities through events and fundraising.
