Green Fingered Volunteers – Health Tree Foundation

The Health Tree Foundation (HTF), the official charity for the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, are on the hunt for volunteers who can help give a little TLC to the gardens at Scunthorpe General Hospital. If you are interested in helping give a little back to your local community then you could be just the person they have been looking for.

The charity is striving to help look after the gardens within the hospital grounds to create tidy and peaceful outdoor areas where patients and families visiting the hospital can enjoy some fresh air.

HTF are urging local companies, gardening groups and social groups to come on board and help their local hospital charity.

HTF community champion, Hayley Thompson, said: “The gardens at the hospital are in need of a facelift. We would love to have a local community group or businesses offer their time to come along and help make a difference to their local hospital.”

If you are interested in helping to give the gardens a new lease of life, please contact Hayley at: hayley.thompson3@nhs.net or Tel.  03033 305672


Flamborough Head European Marine Site Management Scheme

Volunteers Required!

The cliffs around Flamborough Head and Filey Brigg are home to the UK’s largest mainland breeding seabird colony; during the summer months, over 300,000 seabirds flock to the cliffs to raise their young.  They are joined in the sea below by dolphins, seals, porpoises and even whales, making the Yorkshire coast one of the most important areas for mobile marine species in the country.

International issues like marine litter and climate change are placing significant pressures on our wildlife.  Therefore, it is important that we do everything we can to give the seabirds the best chance of a successful breeding season on the cliffs.

East Riding Council are looking for people who are able to give at least one day a week throughout the summer.  As a volunteer surveyor, you will be positioned at various locations around the protected area in order to record recreational activities, particularly noting whether the seabirds respond to human presence.   You will be trained to record the data accurately and you will be given support and guidance from the Flamborough Head European Marine Site Project Officer.

You don’t need to be a bird expert as full training will be given, however you will need to have your own transport, due to the remote location of the site. Personal access to binoculars/telescope would also be beneficial.

The data you collect will be used to create a baseline of evidence and may inform future management of this internationally-important site.  You will gain skills in surveying, seabird identification and accurate data collection, whilst spending at least one day a week along the cliffs of one of the most amazing stretches of coastline in Yorkshire.

For more information, please contact:

The Butterflies are looking for a cook

Are you a cook or chef looking for a voluntary role?

The Butterflies Memory Loss Support Group is a local charity who work with people with dementia and their carers.  They are currently looking for a person who is able to cook a two course dinner for around 30 people.  The food is simple meat and veg with a simple pudding.  Butterflies use Fairshare for their supplies so often have to be imaginative and don’t always have the luxury of forward planning a menu!!

The luncheon club operates in Garden village on a Tuesday.  They start at around 8.30 and and serve lunch at 12.30.  You would need a DBS, which can be organised, and there will be help towards travel costs and any relevant training that is needed.

Please contact them on 07821 519212 or email butterfliesmlsg@yahoo.co.uk
