Yes you are busy…yes you have very little spare time…. and yes there is always something to do in the house but….you will never feel more satisfied than when you carry out a selfless act such as volunteering, and getting involved with Long Buckby Green Spaces is a an ideal way to start.
What’s more environmental conservation and ‘green exercise’ are proven to have multiple benefits including:
- Reducing depression, stress and anxiety
- Increasing social contact, inclusion and feeling of belonging
- Improving self esteem, confidence & mood
- Increasing meaningful activity & personal achievement.
There are lots of ways you can get involved from helping with general administration, social media and promotion, fundraising, the ‘how to’ of running a small charity, being part of a governing body, practical conservation tasks, wildlife recording and more.
Volunteering at any level is immensely rewarding, and if you think like us that wildlife conservation and the health benefits to you are worth it you’ll meet lots of like-minded people.
Cotton End Park volunteers meet each Sunday morning and occasionally during the week.
Mill Park Reserve working parties are the first Saturday of the month 10am–1pm and every Thursday 9am-1pm.
