Trustees’ Awards for Volunteering open for entries | Scottish Wildlife Trust

Volunteering is at the heart of the work of the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s work. More than 1,000 volunteers are working with us to help protect Scotland’s wildlife for the future.

Our Trustees’ Awards for Volunteering celebrate the broad range of activities carried out by our volunteers, and the enormous impact that they have on our work.

This year there are four categories, including new awards for groups and young people. The winners of each award will be announced by Chair Linda Rosborough at our National Members’ Day, held online on Saturday 5 September.

Our inaugural lifetime achievement award was presented  to David Shenton in 2018
