Green fingered volunteers to be celebrated in Warrington

15th March 2019

Several dedicated Green Angels participants will be awarded by the Land Trust in Warrington on Friday 22 March.

The Land Trust’s Green Angels scheme run environmental training courses and volunteering sessions across the town which have made a difference to the lives of many participants.

Many of the participants have benefited significantly from both the courses and volunteering, with some starting up their own landscape maintenance businesses and some finding employment as a result of Green Angels.

The event will not only celebrate the achievements and commitment of the individuals, but will also give people the chance to learn about Green Angels and the opportunities available in the area for people who are interested in the outdoors and environment.

Representatives from Reaseheath College, Myerscough College, The Conservation Volunteers, Lancashire Wildlife Trust, United Utilities and Continental Landscapes will be able to give out information to anyone who is interested in the sector at the event.

Carolyn Hassall, Green Angels Project Leader, said:

“This is a very exciting time for Green Angels and I am thrilled to be able to take the time to recognise the positive outcomes of the scheme in Warrington.

“We have some fantastic people involved with the courses and volunteering and it’s important that they know how much we value their time, commitment and success.

“We welcome anyone who is interested in the courses or volunteering to come down and have a chat. It’s an opportunity to learn about our project and see the results first-hand.”
