50 Years of Volunteering

50 Years Volunteering for the National Trust 

At a recent volunteer forum that is held twice yearly on the North Coast, we were delighted to celebrate the long term achievements of many of our volunteers. These forums are designed as an opportunity for all of our volunteers to get together to talk about the projects they have been working on and to celebrate each other’s successes.
