We couldn’t exist without the help and support of our volunteers and we convey our grateful thanks to all of you who help us in so many ways. We are always in need of new volunteers; jobs can range from guiding a visually impaired person, assisting a wheelchair user, driving a minibus, piloting a tandem, or mending our stock of equipment! Full training is given as required. Volunteers can come as often or as little as they wish. We guarantee that it is rewarding, exciting and fun!

If you would like further information on the volunteering opportunities available we’d love to hear from you.

Volunteering gets me out into the countryside, blows away the cobwebs and allows me to enjoy a day assisting others, which is always a great day out, whatever the weather. I don’t see it as ‘volunteering’, I see it as time shared with others, where we share the experience of whatever we are doing. Loz


I’m really enjoying everything about volunteering – the motivation to get out cycling (even in the rain, it’s strangely not as bad as you might think!), the challenge of learning something new, the fantastic company in the pub and at the same time helping other people to enjoy these things too – what’s not to like about that?
