This week is the 30th annual celebration of the amazing work that millions of volunteers carry out every year in the UK.
Volunteering can be hugely rewarding, for the volunteer as well as the cause they are helping. The number of people doing voluntary work is on the increase, partly as a result of cuts in public funding which have led to authorities and charities having to lay off paid staff.
If you fancy doing something a bit different, have some time on your hands that you'd like to fill, or want to get experience with a view to changing career, why not consider doing some voluntary work in the Chilterns? There are lots of opportunities, from hands-on practical conservation work out in the countryside, to historical research, helping with events, monitoring rights of way and planning applications or encouraging the public to appreciate local wildlife.
