Events support volunteers

Walk and talk at Mere Sands Wood

We are looking for volunteers who would like to support us in our events programme – from organising a litter pick to helping out on an organised walk. This is a flexible role and could take up as much or as little time as you can offer!

CPRE volunteers at Myerscough Country ShowWe would like to invite volunteers to get involved with the planning and delivery of our events programme, to further our aims of raising the profile of and protecting Lancashire’s countryside.

This role is particularly interesting as we would like to highlight both rural Lancashire’s green spaces and those within our urban areas of Greater Manchester and the Liverpool City Region. We are also interested in working with rural businesses to highlight local food and drink production in the county via tours and visits.

Activities involve:

  • contributing ideas for events based on experience, contacts and interests
  • taking an active role in organising event(s) for the branch
  • building relationships with local businesses/corporates to negotiate venues/destinations for events
  • researching the possibility of CPRE members, supporters and patrons who have celebrated homes or gardens contributing to the events programme
  • being an advocate for the charity at all times – asking people to join, giving out leaflets, gathering names of interested parties and talking about our work
