Details of the Charity:
The London Wildlife Trust (LWT) is a registered charity with a staffed office in Central London. The Hillingdon Group is a local group of volunteers who work in conjunction with LWT for the management of 11 nature reserves in Hillingdon, and in the interests of wildlife all over the borough. Hillingdon Group volunteers work tasks are usually at the weekend.
Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:
The Volunteer will not be set a fixed role. He/she will be introduced to the Nature Reserves in Hillingdon, and will be encouraged to take an active part in a programme of workdays which might include meadow mowing, scrub clearance, path clearing, or woodland work. The volunteer will receive training in the use of tools and will learn more about local wildlife and its needs. More formal training can be arranged for power tools, the use of chemicals and any other relevant courses.
No skills required just a genuine interest in wildlife and willingness to work outdoors

- Lunch provided
- Hours volunteered will be recorded on your HEAR – which goes on your permanent university record
- All hours contribute towards your Brunel Volunteers Award, which leads to an invitation to the End of Year Volunteers Dinner
