Each year the Trust awards volunteers who have made the most important contribution to our work. This year Pam Farley is recognised as Volunteer of the Year for the East of England.
She is of course a Woodland Trust member and one of our most active volunteer speakers, giving talks about our work to groups, clubs and societies all over Hertfordshire. Not only that, she coordinates our local St Albans Support Group helping to raise money and awareness for the Trust.
The Support Group started nearly 10 years ago when there wasn’t a Trust wood within 25 miles of St Albans. Now with Heartwood practically on their doorsteps they’ll not only have a wood but England’s largest new woodland! At the drop of a hat they are willing and able to help with all sorts of jobs to help promote Heartwood and make this ambitious project a reality. A special team of people who I think I would be lost without!
