Thank You to Our Volunteers

This Volunteers' Week we would like to say a sincere thank you to all the people who volunteer their time and talents to help us to keep Scotland beautiful.

The core strength of our organisation is based on people giving their time, and this year we have been fortunate to see an increase in the number of people volunteering with us.

More than 28,000 volunteers supporting our Clean Up Scotland Spring Clean campaign during April and May alone.

More than 250,000 volunteer hours were logged with Beautiful Scotland and It's Your Neighbourhood in 2017, time that is worth £4 million.

Keep Scotland Beautiful has also benefited from the expertise of 17 Beautiful Scotland judges, 34 It's Your Neighbourhood assessors, and 48 Green Flag Award judges.

Juliette Camburn, Community Projects Officer at Keep Scotland Beautiful, commented: “We are overwhelmed with the efforts of our volunteers. It is their commitment, enthusiasm and drive that helps to make these initiatives such a success - bringing communities together to help deliver local environmental improvements and enhancing local areas".

Join hundreds of thousands of others across the country playing their part in transforming their local and national environment. Find out more about the opportunities on our volunteering page.
