Nominate volunteer heroes

Have your say

Nominations are wanted for volunteers who give up their spare time to help maintain the Peak District National Park.

The annual Volunteer Awards run by UK National Parks recognises the hard work and effort put in by dedicated individuals across the country’s 14 national parks.

In the Peak District alone, around 400 volunteers gave up 60,000 hours of their time last year.

Their work includes community science activities, guiding visitors and supervising conservation projects.

Coun Lesley Roberts, chair of the Peak District National Park Authority, said: “The amount of time and effort people give the national park is truly awe-inspiring – they contribute in so many ways it is hard to imagine what the Peak District would be like without volunteers.”

Awards are given in four categories – group, volunteer project, individual aged over 25 and young person under 25.
